This has excellent stereo separation and other than a few hiccups the audio is superb. A few tracks have early endings like "Eruption" it sounds like. There is definitely some audio cut from the show and it can be heard more easily nearing the last tracks on the disc. This is an enjoyable hour of very early, live Van Halen.

The waveform looks nice and there is no audio clipping in the show. It is not brickwalled but there really is no room to do any more amplifying either. If it weren't for the cuts in some songs, and again it's really towards the end, this would be a perfect recording. There are more songs in this show too than are on the disc. It became easier to tell this as I listened to the show today. "Eruption" is cut short and songs like the last one, "I Live With Fools", indicate the show was not over and there was more we just do not have. And that's too bad considering how great this show sounds.
I originally got this show the first time from my friend David E. I had gotten it a few other times too over the last couple of years just to compare with what I already had hoping there might be more in the newer downloads that was not in the original share from my friend. But each copy contains the same exact length of time in music and there are no differences in any of the three sources I have.
I hope you enjoy the show...
