Leiden, The Netherlands
September 20, 1984

This is an uncirculated recording from the Leiden show on the Works tour, and certainly better than the existing two sources. This is a very good show from the boys, with a rare 80s performance (sort of) of '39. Overall this tour sees the band in fine musical form, and they are playing plenty of material from their first three albums.

It takes the taper a couple songs to get his gear set to his liking, and then the sound is stable and great. There are some balance issues as it seems the recording keeps flipping back and forth between mono and stereo, but it is a minor distraction. It's definitely one of the best audience tapes of 1984.

The tape was transferred to 24 bit / 96 kHz WAV, and I safely dithered it down to 16/44 with absolutely no audible difference.

Thanks to Ghostofasmile for doing the transfer, and to the taper, whoever/wherever you are !
