Great recording. I thank sim for letting me borrow his master tapes to transfer. I was having trouble with my ZX-7 and needed to get it serviced. So this one took a while to transfer. This really is a good recording. This is a straight transfer from the master tape. Nothing was done in post besides upping the wav file to -.01 db. To be honest, it doesn't need anything. After "Happiness in Slavery" there is the tape flip which "Eraser" is cut a bit at the beginning. Again, thanks to Sim for letting me borrow the tape!

There was no encore for this show. This was taken from boards, "later on, after the concert, the crowd was cheering (with the auditorium lights on) and there was an announcement, something like "The show is over. The drummer was struck in the head with a shoe." So, supposedly, Vrenna was clocked with a shoe." Hence, no encore.

Smores strikes again by finding some uncirculated NIN! This show is another from the collection of Beerengineer that he was kind enough to give to be shared in this form. This person let others borrow his recording equipment to tape shows, which is pretty rad! After listening through the recording, it is fantastic. With it being so old, there are some drawbacks with some digital scratches during a few songs (Pinion, Mr. Self Destruct, Piggy) and I would contribute the age to that. Or possibly the transfer. Sometimes DAT tapes can be sensitive to the deck used. Would love to try and transfer it on the 3 decks I have to see. Besides that, the tapes are flawless. Sound is immaculate.
