- DAT from the Dutch Masters Archives
- Transfer: DAT played on Sony DTC-790 deck -> S/PDIF cable -> Terratec
Aureon 5.1 soundcard -> Adobe Audition -> WAV -> CDWave -> WAV -> FLAC
- Mastering done in Adobe Audition; a few clicks removed, some minor
diginoise repaired in Old Man.
- Known flaws: There is a tape flip right in the middle of California Sunset.
This recording is neatly split in two parts of 46 minutes,
Grey Riders only just fit on the second side of the tape and is complete.
- The Needle And The Damage Done is one of three performances on this tour.
Grey Riders is one of 25 known performances, which were all on this tour
in August and September of 1985. Also a nice Nothing Is Perfect.
- This is a concert at an outdoor State Fair, and Neil comments a few times on the rising moon.
The show ends with fireworks during the last notes of Grey Riders.
