SQ - 9-9.5/10, ex- to ex aud (IMHO as always)

I did not attend this show and obviously did not tape it, so
this will be relatively short and sweet. I either bought this
from the taper for ~ $15 US or traded for it back in 1991. It's
a really fine SQ complete show marred only by a woobitch/cow/
pig hereafter referred to as WBCP. This asshole sadly is present
for the entire show ; the taper must not have been able to get
away from her which makes sense, as the Civic Arena has only
assigned seats so once you're there, you're trapped. I found her
screams to be very annoying so I removed at least 50 screams from
the entire show, probably more. They were all identical which is
scary ; one thinks of a machine that cannot be turned off. This
took quite a while but the show is much the better for it. You
may sense a little "choppiness" in some of the tracks, so if you're
a real purist, you might not want to download this. I did include
unedited versions of two tracks in a separate folder that you can
use if you desire ; these were the most "choppy" so you can use
them if you want but I hope you enjoy the screaming ! It really is
a great show though, so I think that you'll be much better off if
you're a FM fan and you grab this. The WBCP was very prolific and
seemed to me to be screaming just to hear herself scream ; a real
asshole Pixburg're probably ~ 40 years old now so if
you happen to be reading this, FUCK YOU !!! Thanks for marring a
great recording, scumbag. A brief description of the concert now...

The band put on a great show, promoting the Behind The Mask album.
Stevie Nicks sounded pretty coked-up and I've always thought that
she sounded like a sheep when she sang. There's a lot of space-rock
in this concert during the extended solos and during the drum solo
somebody (Mick or the African guest drummer) is shouting and screaming
in an indecipherable language. You gotta be there to believe it. And
you are if you grab this one. I could continue but I think I'll let
the music do the talking. That's all that I have so let's get this
show on the road...

Finally, no buy, no sell, no mp3. Please seed this as long as you can.
If you're a FM fan, you NEED this tape. A very high-energy show in which
everybody shines, especially Rick, the lead guitarist. I will post samples
shortly for those of you still undecided, but I think you'll find that
this is an excellent tape and a fine addition to any Fleetwood Mac fan's
collection. Well, thanks for reading this and Mr. Natural would like to
add these few comments: have fun, don't freak out, don't be a WBCP and by
all means, enjoy the concert!!!

If you were at this show and would like to share your memories, chime
in by all means !
