Comments:
* w/ material from previously circulated MacDonald shn fileset.
The MacDonald source is missing less than 30 seconds of material from Drums and there was overlap between sources so that a complete performance recording is possible.  

The Drummers apparently never leave the stage during Drums, and Space is short brief, and TOO-theme infused leading up to a Vesuvial Phil bomb TOO explosion.  The encore is absent from Bill's source and was patched from the prior circulating recording which by comparison has better dynamic range and more high frequencies which is entirely related to the microphones.  Bill's recording sounds great from close stage proximity and during the quiet passages in the second set its pretty cool to know that you are listening to Jerry's guitar amp directly than the PA.  There is a lot of close up noise at times.  There is more bass on this recording though the high end on the previously circulated source is much cleaner and crisper.  Still, for a 26 year old type I maxell master cassette made with a boombox, it sounds pretty good.  I wish i had a picture of Bill with a ghetto blaster taping a dead show up close to the stage in london no less...
