I came into possession of this a few years ago, when I downloaded it from a blog site dedicated to RoIO / bootlegs (the name escapes me now). From what information I've gathered since, this is a composite of both the Hopkins source tape, and the legendary Lampinski tape - In other words, this is THE DEFINITIVE version of this show. The only way the sound can be marginally improved is if a tape from the soundboard popped up.
This, coupled with the Millard recording of LA Sports Arena, 'Cruel, But Fair' (which I also may re-post if the interest is there) are the best recordings from the entire tour. Not only that, but the Floyd are white-hot on both nights.
In terms of lineage, there isn't much that I can really say (not being too much of an expert), but both the sources for this show have been taken from the Master cassette, and now I am uploading the files as I originally got them, in FLAC format.
I'd like to add that it is worth getting this JUST for Any Colour You Like. Take my word for it, it is PHENOMENAL :D
The only thing that I have changed about the files since I first got them, is that instead of it covering 3 CD's, I managed to fit the encore of Echoes on the end of Disc 2. (I should specify that when I downloaded this show in FLAC format, I copy and pasted it and converted one of the copies into MP3 format, so I could have it on my iPod).
For me, the sound quality doesn't get much better than this (although I'm more than willing to be proved wrong!)
