There are already 2 different sources circulating from this concert and this is the 3rd one. Unfortunately there were some problems mostly during the first tracks concerning sound level and some distortions resulting from too high level. It is not clear where these distortions are resulting from as there seemed to be some major problems with the PA at the venue. Also it seems that no.66 changed his position or at least the position of the mike during the concert several times. But all in all a very intense recording which captures the enigma of the band and especially Ian Curtis impressingly. I wish I could have been there. But at least we have this recording here to get a glimpse of the historic greatness of the band.
Attched are some photos and the flyer of the gig.
