Quite a lot of nice SBDs of that era do exist, some of which show some "ageing" side effects, but in regard to the casette taping of those days that's pretty logical. Again a Lotus show, so the setlist is almost identical. Superb performance 
No drum solo (Kyoto) and some other tracks were longer in the San Diego show. 

The SBD quality is good, though I again felt the need to run Audition to improve it a bit on the high end. I think the result is really fine again! A little hiss is to be heard in the silent passages, but the overall biost in the high end wieghs up to that.
