This show was recently uploaded by Diamond Dog back in September, this gave me the opportunity to compare it to my recording and see what could be done to improve it.
I felt this worthwhile as this is probably one of the best quality audience recordings from this tour.

The result is this upload, the first half of the show is from my tape as I felt it had less distortion and a brighter sound (and a couple of extra minutes of Station to Station), the second half is from DD's original upload as my tape had more drop outs and breaks in the recording.
The two parts have been spliced together and cleaned, resulting in the removal of over 80% of the overdriven distortion. The massive drop out at the end of Rebel Rebel-Jean Genie is still very evident, I've done what I can to improve it but creating something from nothing is nigh on impossible.
