A raw transfer of the second half of the reel to reel audience recording of this concert that was made by or sanctioned by the band. Being semi-official you might expect this recording to be of a high standard but it is fairly typical for an amateur taping from this period.

The source was transferred to cassette in the late 1990's and a copy was sent to Jon R (reel to reel > cassette > Jon R's cassette).

Harvested used a mixture of Recorder 1 and Recorder 2 for their HRV CDR 009 release. This is because Jon R's source copied Recorder 1 to side A of the cassette and Recorder 2 (the second set) to side B. The encore from Recorder 2 is on a second tape.

Recorder 2 also taped the first set and it still exists but it has not been circulated. The complete Recorder 2 is about 95 minutes.

An obvious marker for this recorder that helps distinguish it from Recorder 1 is that after the encore as the house lights come up, someone says 'wow'.
