This is a mono recording, which was processed in two channels. I took the right channel, which had the best frequency response, and copied that to the left. All it needed after that was to edit the overlapping Cassette sides, appending and tracking. No other adjustments were made.

To me, this represents a big upgrade to the Reeling In Pink Floyd source, it really gives a sense of "being there". The noisy crowd, firecrackers and shoutings of "sit down!", although irritating at times, are all part of the concert experience. An excellent capture and a very good performance.

There's a tape cut after Dogs at 17:29 and a cut after Set One, SOYCD (Parts 1-5) cuts in and misses the very beginning. Additionally there's a small cut after the ending of WYWH, a cut after Set Two and a cut between Money and Us And Them.

Compared with the Reeling In Pink Floyd Master > DAT source, this source misses:
The opening announcements and the "Pink Noise" before the show, a total of 2:19
The announcement about letting go of the Pig between sets, a total of 0:27
Audience noise after SOYCD (Parts 6-9), a total of 0:20
Audience noise before Money, a total of 1:02
Audience noise and chatter after Money, a total of 4:17
Us And Them and Money had been swapped on this source, correct order is restored here
The speed varies between the two within 0.1 and 0.6%, there was no need for adjustment
