This is a pretty elusive tape to obtain. I have reached out to both Richard (who taped the show) and Louis (who edited the show and possibly held the video recorder throughout the show as well) to get a copy of this for the archive. With a lot of back and forth that sadly has not gotten anywhere, this is all I could get the archive. They got approval from Trent to film this show. Also on their youtube page was soundchecks of Terrible Lie and Sin, which are also included. This is the same source as source 1 on the page. The quality is significantly improved from the DVD version that was probably dubbed a few dozen times and then authored to DVD. I can also confirm that “Down In It” and “Head Like a Hole” were recorded for this source. Sadly, this youtube rip was partial of the show. But includes DII and HLAH. It misses almost the whole middle portion of the set though. Either way, I am glad to know that this is out there and I hope to one day have the full source (and raw video) for this show. For now, this will do.

Last show on the Sin Tour. This DVD is a very high gen of a VHS tape. It is filmed from the left rear of the venue. It seems to be on a tripod or fixed shot. I bet a low gen would look pretty good. This recording is not that great, but it documents the night. The recording is incomplete and is cut right after the beginning of 'Down In It.' I assume it was filmed fully. But I may suspect that this master tape was recorded over at the end. I believe this happened because this DVD cuts to another performance shortly after 'Down In It' is cut.
