April 26, 1979
**Low-circulation alternate recording**
**Mastered by TheTooleMan, 4/2003**
Lineage: first-gen source -> TheTooleMan (Sound Forge, etc) -> audio CD -> EAC -> FLAC
One of the best performances and recordings of the 1979 tour.
The source tape of this excellent recording is superior to the one usually circulating, but it doesn't see the light of day as often. It was made with shotgun mics and has a very up-close sound. A small gap in "And You And I" is patched with the more common tape.
Play it loud and come on down!

The unofficial recording of this is incredible!!!! The band was so on that night-Rick was incredible, very high in the mix! Steve puts new spins on the solo at the end of SK, and throughout Time and a Word, The whole medley is incredible, including a 5 sec. section from Ritual, and Awaken is stunning!!!! My favorite of all the recordings from the Tourmato tours-and there are many good ones!!! You must check this out!!!
