Comments:
Excellent soundboard from Gabriel's summer 1987 tour of outdoor amphitheaters. By this time, he had been promoting the album for the better part of a year, so the set had pretty much jelled and the band was hitting on all cylinders. All of these performances were great.

The recording itself . . . I traded for it from an established Gabriel collector in early 1988; he claimed it was a soundboard. Most of the commenters here appear to think it's an audience recording, so perhaps it is -- either way it's a very nice recording for the era. I don't know the generation, but given when I got it and how well-connected he was, I don't think it's more than two or three generations removed from the master. The fidelity for a cassette recording is really nice. Listen to the mp3 samples and judge for yourself.
