A great show from very late into the 80/81 Tour. Overall sound is very nice.
A good balance of voice and instruments. The crowd is very attentive, they stay quiet during the live "fade-outs" of many songs. My old notes say that "Big Toe" and "Sheriff Of Hong Kong" make their tour debuts here. That note was based on my tape collection, I am missing very few shows from this tour and the band did add a few songs to the set-list in the later part of the tour. Don's singing is very good here. He is totally locked in with the band just about the whole show. There are also a few excellent horn solos. Enjoy.

Much thanks to all of the traders I used to trade through the mail with.
Also much thanks to the original taper of this excellent show.
