Comments: The only reason I don't give this an A+ is because the performance isn't as strong as some others that I have heard that I didn't get a chance to put on my blog. The sound quality is astonishing, really. Its excellent, definatly. It will blow your ears out if you listen to loud on headphones, and it will break your windows when you have it on your stereo, but you won't mind because the sound is near soundboard. A show you need to get.

Comments: This is a really great show, nothing is really to complain about this bootleg. This honestly sounds like a soundboard or a monitor or scanner mix, but its actually a DAT source, which actually amazes me. Why I didn't ever make comments on this one, I'll never know till now. There is some traveling, if your listening in headphones or anything of that nature, in the music, it seems to go from ear to ear and it gets a little annoying, but its not the worst thing that could happen. The worst thing that could happen is that this is bad, and its not. The sound, as I mentioned before, is great, and the performance is really nice as well. The band seems to be up for the night, rocking out the stage as hard as they can, with little or no flaws within the performance. What else is stricking about this bootleg is that there is almost no audience noise in-between the songs, so you can hear everything near perfrection, like you wished. There is more, we get a good version of Force Ten, Xanadu, and Dreamline, which is amazing, to make the performance even better. One reason to get this is because of the great sound, and no audience noise, and another great reason to get this amazing, awesome, incredible bootleg is because I really recommend it, a good bootleg to have for anyone.
