Initially this was sent over from an unknown gen/transfer from a VHS that was bought in the Camden market in the mid-90's. That version has slightly better audio and less clipping. This is why I have kept the DVD version of it available on the archive above as the 2nd option. But today, we now have a master transfer. Transferred and sent over by TravisBickle1963 who is doing the lord's work by archiving anything and everything of filmer's master tapes and traveling thousands of miles to gather these tapes in order to preserve them. Check out his Twitter page or FaceBook page to keep informed with what sort of bands he is unearthing! Seems like a weekly thing! Frank once again was kind enough to take the large AVI file and transcode it to something a bit more manageable for release on the archive. This was rumored to be filmed by the NIN crew for reference, but that is now a false statement. This was filmed by a big filmer in the London area who had covered many shows over the years. The quality compared to the DVD that has been circulating is just epic. Amazing to see such an early 1994 show in such quality and Travis did an amazing job transferring the tape. Just one spot where the recording took a break, but the most noticeable was the following area @ 01:08:20 - Dead Souls where a possible battery swap happened as it cut out for a bit. It must be noted that I have kept the DVD transfer because the audio does sound better and does not have the crackling you may hear on the new master transfer. That may be due to the age of the tape and it's transfer being almost 26 years since it was recorded.

Many collectors have labeled the soundboard recording circulating is from this show, but it is actually 05/26. You can verify they are two completely different nights from the banter inbetween songs.

This was uploaded to DIME MAY 2022 by Harvey1. This cassette was purchased at a record fair in Edinburgh in the late 90s. Although I don't know for certain, this sounds like it could be that source 2 (Sony TCD-D3 + Sony ECM-909) recording that is listed on the archive, but I have no recording. At this point this is considered Source 3. As we have no definitive proof. But I would guess with how clear the recording is itself, it could be sourced from a DAT recording. The transfer has a bit of electrical interference in it, I contacted the uploader and they threw away the tape.. Sound is rather good, but it seems to be a higher gen tape. If you know anything about this recording, or potentially have an upgrade to this (master DAT?) I'd love to add it to the archive! I am still searching for a 5/25/1994 Forum tape too.
