QUALITY: This show is a significantly better recording than the Mannheim show I posted. I would rate this as a B/B+. The sound drops out of the right channel a couple times, but this tape is in MUCH better condition than the Mannheim recording was.

As before, I have edited out some unnecessary stuff like long applause, but never did I cut out any of the music. Not a single note. I equalized the channels as best I could and used no noise reduction/filters.

THE SHOW: The Mannheim show had "I'm Sticking With You," but the Hamburg show has a couple pleasant surprises as well. I always liked "Looking for Love." I wonder if they ever laid that down in the studio?!
