Great sounding bootleg! This is a mix of the pre-FM and FM sources from this concert. Any songs, music and applause that was missing from the pre-FM source have been patched in from the FM broadcast recording. Two young lovers and Tunnel of love are a combination of both sources due to the incompleteness of the pre-FM source. All the comments of the radio reporter are edited out and the sound has been remastered (for the show with radio reporter, see Radio Show CD's section, Saturday's at seven - Houston 1985). The FM source was slightly EQ'd to bring out certain details. The Left and Right channels were also balanced. No digital noise reduction was used. The result: without a doubt the most complete and best sounding recording of this legendary concert.
