The original artwork for Party To Boston was reworked by the recent reseeder to reflect this second generation recording. However, the setlist is still tracked for the 2 CD set the artwork was originally made for (the boot label) and it looks like "Television Politician" was just added at the end of CD 2 (remember, this was the 74 minute CD days). I went ahead and left it in the upload so it's included even though both versions independently will fit on one CD-R nowadays.
And by the way, the bootleg label's copy of the show did not have "Television Politician" on it but this second generation copy does making it a (more) complete show according to the sharing party. My copy of Party To Boston does have "Television Politician" but maybe it was added at a later date?
A friend on the Bootradr's Blind Boot Blog Facebook Secret Group (Facebook's name for the type of group) had asked if I had any RTZ (Return To Zero), a band composed of by a few Boston members during their hiatus including the late Brad Delp. I did not have anything from RTZ. All I could find was an mp3 copy of a RTZ 1991 Cleveland show and y'all know what I think of lossy audio. So in an attempt to honor a request I could not quiet fill yet, I thought I'd share this recently re-shared Boston show.
All thanks and credit goes to the original taper and "zootype" for this August 2015 reseed on Dime!

No EQ work was done on the audio!

The recording is not without its flaws. But it is the best copy I've heard of this show out of the two I have heard. The first was the aforementioned Party To Boston bootleg label release.
I'm not sure why "zootype" redid the tracking and put multiple songs together? But he did and that's the way the show in this download is tracked. The waveform also shows audio clipping in most songs meaning the audio was a little louder than it should've been in either the recording level, tape transfer, or in the work done on the project. Some songs have no clipping while others are not bad. But a few have heavier clipping points indicated by the waveform looking in Audacity.
While this isn't RTZ, some of the songs (as well as the members) were used in the RTZ show setlists I saw when researching and looking for any shows from RTZ.
If anyone has any RTZ shows, studio outtakes, or just has any information where I might be able to find any lossless RTZ RoIO's, please let me know either in a comment or on the Bootradr's Blind Boot Blog Facebook Community Page (different than the Secret Group one). All of the information on the Facebook sites can be found under the "Contact" HTML link on the right side of my site if you look and/or scroll up or down. And thank you if you can help too!
I hope you enjoy the show...
