notes: 
these are all shared together because it was all part of a few 1994 days of Sting in New Jersey and NY area and the Grammy Awards, featuring one of his most popular albums, "Ten Summoner's Tales". two different master recordings were used to put this together due to some issues with both recordings. for example the cassette missed the end of roxanne and beginning of shape of my heart, and the radio outro after St. Augustine (which makes a good disc break point) so the reel copy was used for those 2 songs and the 1st one which cut off the first notes of the show. unfortunately there is still a short gap in the middle of seven days, from the broadcast. otherwise this appears to be the full NJ concert from the WW1 broadcast. apparently they come from 2 different re-broadcasts on the same radio station and using the same reciever. these tapes have almost never been played since being recorded.
