I received this cd-r in a snail-mail trade a long time ago. It
sat in a drawer for years, as it was unlistenable due to speed
problems (the "chipmunk" effect). I recently obtained the tool
to correct that (adobe audition), but I resisted the urge to do
further tinkering with the sound. I leave that to you and your
personal preferences! I wanted to crossfade all the tracks back
together, too, as the fades are extremely annoying, but figured
it best to leave it as I received it, as much as possible...

There are many gems here, performed only on this tour (at
least to my knowledge), like "The Eagle Will Rise Again" and
"In The Real World," and the several 'Try Anything Once' songs. I
scoured the internets for setlists from this tour, and only found
one partial, so i don't know if the show is complete. There may
have been another encore song, or "Don't Answer Me" could have
been the first encore? Any further info would be appreciated...


If anyone wishes to re-master this show, feel free, and please
share your work. This is a very good recording, to my ears, but a
better source would be appreciated. Also, if anyone has 1995-08-13
at the TPAC in Nashville TN (regardless of quality), please post!!
That was my first Alan Parsons show...
