I don't see many complete mid-80s Neil shows on DIME, and 80s soundboards seem to be especially rare. Neil went through a synthesiser phase for a while, which resulted in a very different sound to many of his songs (check out "Mr. Soul" here).

This show has gotten some circulation among rusties, but I haven't seen it here on DIME yet. Here is a complete FM-sourced soundboard from 1986, with excellent, studio-quality sound (sample below). Includes a number of songs from "Life," as well as a few "Trans" tunes (in full electronic garb) that haven't gotten much Neil-time since.

Thanks to original taper.

Original Taper's Notes:
This FM show was broadcast in Boston around 1994. I taped the show off the air on DAT. Overall the sound is very good, what you would expect for an FM broadcast. There is 1 spot of diginoise towards the very end of Like a Hurricane. There are no dropouts. All the commercials were cut out using Goldwave. There were no fades in the music except for between Cortez the Killer and Sample and Hold. I left these FM fades as they were.
