Appx. duration: 40 mins. Sound quality: 6-7/9
This live recording does not have very good sound
quality. This is one of the relatively few times
Candidate was performed live and also preserved on
tape for posterity.

In 2004 an inline/low generation version of this recording surfaced. This doesn't have any left channel drop-out in Candidate, but the same internal cut in Atrocity Exhibition and cut between the last two songs. It's probably from the same master/source as the old version. Appx. duration: 42 mins. Sound quality: 7-8//9

There is also a version of this recording without the internal cut in Atrocity Exhibition and no cut between the two last songs. Otherwise it seems to be the same as the old inferior tape. We don't believe this is from a different source than the above versions, but if you think differently let us know!

This concert features on the following bootlegs:
