As stated, this recording has been mastered from a needledrop. Before doing this, I cleaned the vinyl carefully using anti-stat. The record looks as if it was hardly played before I owned it. The grooves are not precisely centered around the hole, causing the needle to drift about. Sometimes you can obviously hear this. The sound has hardly any frequencies above 10kHz (except for the scratches on the vinyl). It's mono, but I left the left and right channels intact. If you're expecting a high quality soundboard recording, this is not it...
But having said that, it is listenable enough and also quite hard to find. The first track sounds the worst, after that the sound gets better.
