This tape comes from nzb. The beginning was really bad, the recorder was not working properly, there was even a piece of radio talk on it. I tried to improve it and the result is better, but it's still for collectors and completists only. In particular it was too fast so I decelerated the speed by 12% (this gives the best result to my ears with the comparison to the officially released Manchester-show).Spirit was cut in two parts (at 5'15) with a repeated segment which I edited off. In the middle of Smiles And Grins the sound went back and forth and there was a gap at 15'55 which I fixed. I also reworked the beginnings/ends of the cd-r with fade ins/outs and I amplified the sound of some tracks.
