I have had to manually get rid of some microgapping that was in the trade CDR set I got, I hope I have done so to everybody's satisfaction. This show is too amazing not to share. 
I rate this EXCELLENT soundwise, will post a sample in a bit. Personally I love this concert, just because it features so many "unknown" and rarely performed favourites and some tracks featured on the Brothers Album. 
According to Santanamigos this concert misses "Transmutation/Industrial" as D2T10 but to me it sounds like the concert is over after Jingo, which was the last song of the show for the concerts around this era. I am open to any additional information. Amigos also notes this: Broadcast at an unknown date on Polish TV.

nothing more abrupt than a radio announcer messin' up the groove. Hard enough trying to find a break in the songs to make a file, but those announcers just poke right in there. So I undid them the best I could. Most songs are left in one continuum. Tape flip somewhere in the solos - in all I didn't notice any discomfort in listening to this show. Enjoy.

This show was recorded/aired for the "King Biscuit Flower Hour."  An FM version of this recording also circulates, but this is far superior in sound quality (I have both sources). This is a fantastic show but is not heavily circulated, for those of you listening to this for the first time I hope you enjoy it, for those of you who already have the FM version, enjoy the upgrade.

This is from the liberated boot "Live in Montreux, Summer 1971". Based on the information I had, this was mistakenly torrented a few days ago as Montreux 1971-05-02 soundboard with track 10 omitted as having been officially released. After that torrent received several comments to teh contrary, I did some more research and found alternative documentation on a blog that fits with these comments and seems more likely. It appears this bootleg is a combination of performances from Montreux in 1970 (tracks 1-6) and 1971 (tracks 7-14), hence BMW/GQ and Neshabur are repeated. This also matches with the set lists in Santanamigos and you can hear a slight change in the recording between tracks 6 and 7.

Notes by the taper
Since the original recording was made with Dolby B on, which adds 10dB boost to the high frequencies, yet the playback was done without Dolby B on (which would have cut the high frequencies by 10dB) I took the liberty of applying some very slight noise (hiss) reduction using BIAS Sound Soap. If anyone wants the recording without this processing please contact me and I'd be happy to oblige. I usually am against offering original recordings with any processing but I was very light-handed here. I also recorded Ry Cooder at the Cabaret on August 5, 1984. About half the songs they did were the same. That has been and someday again may be a (separate) torrent TRT just under 90 minutes. The venue for this show was The Cotati Cabaret in Cotati, CA. It was a small club that held about 300 people. Cotati is a small town located about an hour north of San Francisco.

An otherwise great-sounding capture of an FM broadcast, "Bad Boys in Cleveland" played back audibly below pitch. Using a tuning app, I compared against official references to measure by how much, then adjusted the speed accordingly upwards so that it now plays at the correct pitch. I took no other liberties with the source. All respect and praise to everyone who had a hand in bringing the original edition to Rush fans! I humbly offer up a speed-corrected version for your enjoyment!

When "Visions and Illusions - Version 2.01" was released by Digital Reproductions in 2003, it was a big improvement over previous versions of this recordings in circulation. Sound quality was a lot better, and speed was corrected, all except for d1t10 (Red Sector A) which continued to play ~2% too slow. This release (version 2.02) has Red Sector A running at the right speed. Other than this one speed corrected track, it's identical to Digital Reproductions Visions and Illusions 2.01. Post reviews for this show at the Digital Rush Experience (link below).

This is one of those "wow" shows and one of the Rush must-haves. This is probably the best version to get of this show as it contains the ENTIRE concert, unlike the truncated 'Mystic Dreams,' and has speed-corrected all the tracks. The only detraction to this show and why it rates a 9.5 instead of a perfect 10 is that Alex is low in the mix. In fact, there are times when the keyboards are going full-bore like during 'Subdivisions' he gets absolutely buried. On the other hand, this is probably the BEST show to be awed by the dextrous majesty of Mr. Geddy Lee. Every note is crystal clear and you can hear parts that aren't always easy to pick out on album - listen for instance to the outro portion of 'New World Man' and then pick your jaw up off the floor. This bootleg easily ranks among the 10 best of Rush out there. Don't pass it by."

Comments and Reviews:

Taken from the Great Rush Bootleg Series:

The single best sounding Rush bootleg. Too bad the show wasn’t as good as the recording! Rush are obviously going through the motions. This was to be Les Claypool’s (of Primus) tape, but some sneaky dude stole it and took off with it at the end of the show. Good for us, but I feel sort of sorry for Les.

Taken from the Rush CD Bootleg List:

Someone else has finally pressed a copy of the Oakland 1992 soundboard. However, unlike most copies, this sounds better than the first "Rush 'N' Roulette '92" CD. The sound is clearer, the vocals more up-front. This is either a closer-to-master copy, or one that has been remastered. It is NOT a copy of the RNR92 cd, as the cds break in different places. This has all the same tracks, and is essentially the same recording as RNR92. The medley, however, is a single track and not indexed individually as RNR92 is. The booklet is also superior, containing several live concert shots (mostly from "Hold Your Fire") and a copy of the Rush Tour Dates Listing (found elsewhere on this web site) "Roll The Bones" section. It was obviously put together by someone who "cared", none of the tracks is mislabeled (and yes, they actually put "The Spirit Of Radio" INSTEAD of "Spirit of the Radio"!!). If you thought RNR92 sounded good, wait till you hear this one! A definite MUST buy (you might want to get it even if you already have RNR92!). If you have a choice between the two cd's, my vote would have to be with Mirrors.

Taken from Ron's Rush ROIO Review:

This is widely regarded as the definitive Rush show -- the legendary Oakland performance. In my opinion, this was the last great tour, featuring a remarkably well-balanced set list. All the RTB songs come alive with extended solos, and long intros or outros. "Bravado" is most notable, with Alex delivering a truly inspired end solo. You can’t listen to the studio album quite the same way after this. This tour also has Neil’s best drum solo to date and the best closing medley, IMHO. A truly excellent soundboard recording. The balance and mix are almost perfect, and you could really believe that this is an official release. The flaws in Rush-n-Roulette ‘92 are corrected here -- there are NO dropouts at all. The sound is also better mixed. The bass on this one will shake your house at high volumes. This CD was obviously a labor of love by a true fan. The booklet has many pictures, and lists every date on the RTB tour. The inside of the CD case lists the dates of all previous tours. If you can find "Mirrors," get it. It is definitely better quality than RNR ‘92.

- First "Fly By Night" played live. 
- This source does circulate already. One source is a pre-FM which matches this source, and the other is an FM recording. The pre-FM version I found and downloaded for comparison. This source has some stage banter that was cut from the previously circulating source, a slightly better sound to my ears, and no SBE's. 
- 05 at 4:09 through 4:12 there is a flaw in the recording 
- There are some level fluctuations in 04. 
- 04 has a dead spot from 3:24 to 3:31 during applaus. No music is lost. 
- Thanks to Greenfox for another fine Agora source!!

For this, all tracks and sources were mixed by myself from my own collection, using Sony Sound Forge 10 with accurate pich adjustment and normalisation. 

Converted from WAV to Flac (level 3) with Fairstars ripper. 

I have used three sources for this - notably my master cassette recording, which saw A Song For Europe and Do The Strand broadcast for (I believe) the first time. The cassette was ripped to CD using a Philips DCC730 which offers automatic head alignment, so the quality is excellent.

The worst:
Tape flip in "Still Falls The Rain" and is at 29:24. The recording goes to mono at 29:18 and returns to stereo at 29:44. "Mother Of Pearl" had a couple dropouts removed at 31:19. During "Love Is The Drug" there were 2 breaks close to each other. Removed about 5 seconds to make this seamless. Between 54:41 and 54:43 (during "Ladytron") there is 2 seconds of static from FM interference. Next tape flip is during " In Every Dream Home A Heartache". A little of the solo was removed at 61:49 to make a cleaner splice. That is the bad stuff that I worked on to make this more presentable to you.

this recording now includes the closing radio comments, along with the whole concert and opening radio comments before that. Roxy had last been to the Orpheum in Boston just about 3 years earlier (for another WBCN broadcast). this one was on the tour of their splendid 1979 album "manifesto" which had a few shows in the U.S. broadcasted. since this was recorded on one side of a reel, there is no tape flip interruption, and no commercial interruptions either. it's all an uninterrupted recording, maybe one of my most often played reels, but it's still a reel, and those rarely get played. A very nice show, to be enjoyed again and again.

Here is something very special. The performances are fun, free spirited and have excellent playing. The Band (members there of) are already playing great, and when the guests show up, they play even better. I'm unable to make a sample on my work computer, but I personally give it a "A+"! It's impossible for it to be better. If you are a fan of The Band, you will surely love these! They are some of my all-time favorite shows by anyone. This is a 100% reseed, nothing was changed.
