From Pigland East - This tape is complete and with only one minor
cut--a very brief tape flip at 44:03 into the second set, which
indicates the taper was using a 90 minute cassette. As usual, FRP strives
to bring you the best possible sound without destroying the archival value
of the source tape by attempting a heavy remastering job.

The audience claps after the 3rd verse during 'Pigs (3DO)' and Roger did
not squeal a number. The audience is generally very quiet and respectful,
which is a refreshing change from the standard audience recording of this
tour. Not a single firework to be heard! David performs an incredible jam
during 'SOYCD (Pts. 6-9)'. This is truly a recording of a band playing at
its peak.

From Pigland West - I'm listening to the show again. What strikes
me the most is the amazing clarity of the recording and the polite and
obviously captivated audience. They are like a Japanese audience--quiet
when they should be and clapping/cheering where appropriate. Hard to believe
they are French (just kidding Pigland Europe!). The performance, I think,
is rather uninspired but certainly an excellent and competent one. A bit
mechanical, maybe. Does David mess up the words in one of the songs?
