I haven't had a chance to listen to this show completely through yet, but from what I've heard, I liked it. It's great to hear the earlier, post Steve Perry, shows with Steve Augeri on vocals. Plus, there are a few songs you normally don't hear or possibly even know unless you bough the officially released Arrival CD when it was released.

The person who shared this show said they got it from the taper that had recorded it. They didn't seem to know any details such as equipment used, transferring methods, or the true lineage. But if I had to guess, I'd bet this was either recorded with a DAT recorder or possibly a mini disc reorder with an external microphone. It has a "DAT feel" to me but I really do not know.
When looking at the waveform, it appears the original taper of the show did a great job of not clipping audio throughout most of the show too (a common and easy mistake to make). It looks as if they have a small, likely unnoticeable amount of clipping on the first disc and that was probably because they were adjusting their recording gear to the right levels. But as far as the overall show goes, it does sound excellent and the band put on a great show this night too.
I hope you enjoy the concert...
