Sound qualty is good, but the set was very quiet, so the volume is boosted overall.
I lowered the volume during applause, and where folk are shouting, coughing, or laughing, wherever possible.
Sometimes this is noticeable, usually where there's applause after a song has started.
A crying baby was heard a couple of times.

The set is tracked to include "extras" at the end of a song, not the beginning of the next one,
so you can hit "forward" when the applause starts, to get to the start of the next song if you want.
Note that doing this might mean missing the sound of Neil changing harmonicas,
unplugging/plugging in guitars, or making the (very) occasional comment.
