Much thanks to Dr. D. who provided me his master DAT recording for remastering.
The recording is very warm with really good punch in the bottom end faithfully representing the powerful bass at the show.
There's a bit of scuffle in the opening song, but the taper gets situated quickly.

Not much was done to the recording other than slight boost in the high and midrange.
Crowd noise was decreased in some places due to loud handclaps.
Also, there's an exchange of words during Whitefish due to someone blocking views, etc.
The bass was decreased slightly and some amplitude adjustments. Finally, the show was normalized.

Overall sound quality is quite nice. However, nearby fans are a bit loud sometimes.
