There is some brickwalling at first due to my levels being set too high - this was soon amended, and the variation in volume was levelled out during mastering. There are a few other patches of distortion throughout the show due to some minor mic issues, but none of this is a major problem.

This is the first two-disc show I've ever mastered without placing fades between discs, for the simple reason that I think this show works better without.

Thanks to Per for the mic loan!
