Notes from original uploader:

I understand the tracks are a mixture recorded recorded on April 30th 1989 in Orlando and April 29th 1989 in Miami.

I originally bought this show on a bootleg CD back in the day, and then sold the single CD version of this show on comparing to the Poets of the Wheat 2CD sourced version here.

This was because the Poets of the Wheat version here has a nice clear sound. It is a little trebley but feels less ‘claustrophobic’ (for lack of a better description) than other versions I heard/had.

I believe it is sourced from a radio station LP ultimately, rather than a radio station CD – and there were differences in the sound of these quite often. There is the slightest wow and flutter but it’s a great involving listen I feel.

I used de click to deal with mild vinyl clicks on a low setting…Michael Stipe’s voice and the grinding guitars mean this was necessary. The entire results were carefully checked, using Sennheiser headphones.
