Excellent sbd recording (A). I'm hesitant to give an A+ because it does sound a bit flat at times. No digital glitches, cuts or flips that I could find. No hiss or distortion. Very clean recording.

Announcer at the beginning, before the encore, and after the last song.

An awesome pFM source of an awesome early Police show. You can feel the energy of the band, the crowd, that whole '79 scene in this show. And it wasn't uncommon for a one-album band to repeat the hit song at the end of the show. Cool stuff.

This saw some processing; Slight compression>channel distinct lows and mids>a little spread>some beef and brightness from the BBE>and even more of a boost to the sub-lows and extreme highs through the multi-band compression of the digital maximization wonder that is called the L3.

I know it sounds like a lot, it nedded it. But it truly sounds quite awesome now.

Some song ID's were re-focused. The DJ was cut out, so the intro and outro tracks were clipped to the beginning of the first and the end of the last song, respectively. Also the DJ before the encore was cut and the "applause" track added to the end of "Next To You". It'll give some distinction to this being a remaster as well.
