A great show! Love these guys. Totally unexpected Manic Mechanic live (I didn't think it was possible).

Strange sound to this tape originally, not a lot of really low end, but a ton of hollow low-mids. Reminds me of how Pink Floyd's Wall shows sounded in the 80s. There was a weird hard cut on the tape after Heard it On the X that may have been the original tapeflip, after which 2000 Blues faded in. I couldn't do anything to fix the fade, but smoothed the hard cut. The same thing happened before Legs, but this time I made an edit that sounded natural.
