Though this recording is incomplete, it is a beautiful soundboard recording. Easily the best record of the 1982 tour.
Transferred by Mike Ziegler for Booji Boy’s Basement.
Tour Essentials edition
This version aims to present a complete 1982 concert with the best sound possible. An audience recording of the 1982-12-29 show in Santa Cruz, CA at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium was used to patch in segments and songs missing from the original 1982-11-11 recording.
No EQ or hiss reduction was used on any source material.
NOTE: The choice was made to use the Santa Cruz recording, rather than the Boston audience recording, to patch the show because the Santa Cruz recording is the best-sounding audience tape from the tour (to my ears, anyhow).
