I’m absolutely floored to see this recording.. This master has been uncirculated for over 24 years! Probably unplayed as well, as the tape was still at the end of the recording! As many of you know the quality of Teddy Ballgame’s recordings, this one does not disappoint!! In the last year, we have seen this recording and the Stanhope 1991 recordings surface. Both are the best in quality of very early Nine Inch Nails and I am so excited to add this to the archive! Big thanks to Teddy for literally going out and taping everything! Also, thank you to Ellaguru for taking the time to transfer this DAT master and sending me the recording! Insane to hear early NIN on Schoeps… This is also the first source from the 2nd day of the Lollapalooza Fest from Shoreline! Performance is great! Seems like the intro of Head Like a Hole had some problems and Jeff Ward improvised on drums! Enjoy.

First time I had seen this show available. It was labeled as the 26th, but this show is from the 27th after confirming the setlist and also comparing it to source 1 for the same inflections etc. The recording misses Now I'm Nothing and is spliced in from another source, not sure which show. Which is why it's labeled as incomplete. This recording also had a bonus track of "Something I Can Never Have" from another show, which was omitted from this to keep it as one show. I am not sure what recording gear they used for this or what generation this is. If Tralfaz is out there, I'd love to know some more about this recording.
