This is the legendary Memphis recording. Again, this show often circulates as lossy or semi-lossy copies with frequencies cut around 17h and so on. This transfer comes from unknown gen cassette with a fully loseless spectrum. It has exact same content, with all tape drop-outs, edits and other fluctuations but depth of the recording is significantly more listenable.

For collector's purposes I did restored version, where I eliminated most of those issues to present this show in much more listenable version. I did not remaster this tape nor process it in any way.

The date of this show is still in dispute. I took it from http://www.mrrandom.com/tourzz.htm but other sources says April 10th.
