notes: 
Well, here we are with another Tears For Fears show from their 1990 tour. The (Feb. 12, 1990) Cleveland show that was uploaded in Dec. 2008 proved to be OVERWHELMINGLY popular, so despite the fact that I'm not a TFF fan, I asked Mexminute to share this great-sounding show with you as well. 

The setlist is similar to the Cleveland show but this one also includes a handful of extra songs (the "Women Of Ireland" intro, "Pale Shelter", "When The Saints Go Marching In" and "The Hurting"). 

The venue for this particular show was then known as the Brendan Byrne Arena, though locals commonly referred to it as the "Meadowlands Arena". It later became known as the Continental Airlines arena before being renamed the Izod Center (its current name). 

Editing notes: 
* Re-tracked show (combined WAV files in Nero, then re-split with CD Wave) 
* Using Nero's wave editor, added a small fade-out to Track 211 and a small fade-in to Track 12 (evidently the tape was stopped between these songs); also added a small fade-out to Track 109 
* Adjusted volume with Nero's wave editor, as listed below 

Volume adjustments: 
The recording I received from Mexminute played at a very low volume, so I first increased Track 212 by +5dB and the rest of the show's volume by +7dB. Even after doing so, certain musical sections and almost all of the between-song speaking still played at a relatively low volume; to compensate for this, I made these additional volume adjustments: 

Tracks 101-102: +3dB (entire track) 
Track 103: +3dB (0:00-0:23), +1dB (0:23-4:32) 
Track 104: +1dB (0:00-2:52) 
Track 105: +5dB (4:54-end) 
Track 106: +5dB (0:00-0:44), +1dB (0:44-5:18), +5dB (8:19-end) 
Track 107: +5dB (0:00-0:51), +1dB (0:51-end) 
Tracks 108-109: +1dB (entire track) 

Track 201: +5dB (entire track) 
Track 202: +5dB (0:00-2:24), +2dB (2:24-3:28), +5dB (3:28-end) 
Track 203: +5dB (0:00-0:06), +4dB (0:06-0:12), +1dB (0:12-end) 
Track 204: +1dB (entire track) 
Track 205: +1dB (0:00-9:56), +3dB (9:56-end) 
Track 206: +3dB (0:00-2:26), +5dB (2:26-end) 
Track 207: +5dB (0:00-0:49), +1dB (0:49-end) 
Track 208: +3dB (0:00-0:51), +1dB (0:51-end) 
Track 209: +1dB (0:00-0:40 and 4:02-end) 
Track 210: +1dB (entire track) 
Track 211: +1dB (0:00-1:42) 
Track 212: No additional volume adjustments 

Note #1: I decided to create a separate track for the intro to "Famous Last Words" since it's fairly lengthy (about two minutes long). 

Note #2: Unlike the 2/12/90 Cleveland show, the encore break after "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" is absent from Mexminute's version of this recording (I suspect the tape must have been paused/stopped during the encore break)
