A fantastic new upgrade to this source that we have had since the beginning of the archive. Thanks to Matt at DMLiveWiki, we were able to add this 2nd gen audio rip from the video recording. This upgrade blows the previous version of this source out of the water! The sound is 100 times better and although audio from a camcorder, the best audio from the very early NIN shows. Matt transferred the VHS tape and hopefully soon we will be able to bring you the video. You can listen to the previous mp3 version of this same source to see how much the quality has been upgraded!

Matt transferred this almost 9 years ago and I just kept forgetting I needed to add the video to the archive! This video recording has been copied and circulated over and over again in various quality. To be honest, this is the best quality I have seen this recording before. I think a lot of it has to do with a stellar transfer by the dmlivewiki. I'd also like to think this VHS is a pretty low gen with less grain than other copies I have seen of this tape. An early recording from Nine Inch Nails, it's pretty amazing to see a quality, unobstructed recording from 1989. Very scarce in terms of tapes from early NIN. If anyone may know who taped this, it would be awesome to have a proper copy! Screenshots:
