Broadcast on the Dutch Radio2 on August 11, 2006 by the KRO.
A great recording, for the first time with complete line-age. Sadly, this is not complete, unlike other versions circulating. But as far as I know, this is the first digitally recorded FM version, so it should be an upgrade.
This was show was banned here before on dime, because of the track "Wake Up and Live": which has been officially released. That track was not included in this re-broadcast. To my best knowledge and reseach, nothing here has been officially release.
The Vara did a truly great job in recording and mixing this. Just love that big bass sound that only reggae bassists seem to have. The trackorder is probably not chronicle, as it is very different from the trackorder of the bootleg w/ the complete version. But I left everything as is. Just raised the volume a bit.
I recorded this at someone else's house from the FM cable, using my own tuner and digital recorder. I had the hardest time finding the right radio frequency, because the radio station I tried to find on the cable is on a different frequency in my own town. I started searching half an hour before the broadcast. But as time went by, I could not find what I was looking for. Then miracleously, I found the right frequency just 10 seconds before the concert started ! Pheeeew....
