Back in 2014, Sal had messaged me on Twitter saying he had taped two SF shows in the early 90s after I had released a 1st gen copy of this recording, here is a sample of the old version of this to compare how massive an upgrade it is. Took some time to find the tapes and I never followed up until I started going back through my emails during quarantine to follow any leads. Sal kindly obliged to send me the tapes to transfer for the archive! This tape is amazing. What I feel is a massive upgrade in quality from the first gen transfer. The sound is a lot clearer and more range. After Sin there is a break because Trent had thrown his mic stand and hit drummer Chris Vrenna in the head and started to bleed. You can see the footage of it in the NIN video, Closure. Sal stops recording during the pause to save tape. Tape flip is during the beginning of Suck. Big thanks to Sal for sending the tapes and allowing me to transfer them for the archive. I am super pumped about this upgrade.

This is really only for collectors only. The version that is cirulating does not have the best sound. Bass overloads as well as the crowd clips the recording at some parts, Closer is cut and there is a lot of hiss. This recording is really for people who were there or if you want to hear all the banter that happened when Vrenna was struck in the head. If there was a known generation from the master tape we can see if there would be less hiss on the tape. But listening to this tape this must be a very high gen.
