Sound Quality: B
Very good – in the top 5 1989 bootlegs for recording quality. Close-sounding, though there is a bit of noise that gets slightly annoying. Does “switch” to a slightly more muffled sound before Where Angels Play, but this still sounds Ok.

Performance Quality: A
Squire, Mani and Reni have some real weight and skill behind their playing, and sound really confident, Squire beginning to add a few tricks into his playing.

Why should I get this bootleg?

To hear Squire’s “Indian” intro to Adored, his wonderfully powerful guitar squeal at the start of Standing Here, and the first hint of Fools Gold possibly ever coming in at the end of IATR.

Fan Reviews

“The recording quality starts off excellent, but deteriorates later. The bass is very clear, which works on some songs but not on others. Overall, I was really impressed though. Ian sings okay, but the rest of the guys play really well individually and as a band.” – Paul Youngson, Scotland
