Hello Vern,

I got the FLAC version from Dime years ago, but the recording is a bit weaker than the MP3 found in Blur Live Recordings Archive. And it misses "Nite Klub" and "This Is A Low".

Here it is, anyway: http://www.mediafire.com/?m8i56rcqyfz0h3d" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Hey Veikko - thank you, appreciated! Downloading now and look forward to listening to the difference in quality.

I have to say, I actually prefer the Dime lossless files over the archive recordings. On Tracey Jacks for example you can hear the keyboard intro much clearer on the lossless files.

I really wonder if any other live show will get an official release. I guess not.

Yeah, I had a closer listen and noticed that the instruments are more separated in the FLAC recording. The MP3 is pretty good too, but it sounds like it's been EQ'd too bright - a typical thing in the 90s, I guess.

I've got this in FLAC level 8 quality from my own recording - lineage is FM broadcast -> Chrome VHS tape -> Audacity WAV -> FLAC. Dunno if it's as good as the others available but it's complete and I'm happy to share it. It may be a week or two before I can share it though :)

Here you go. I've only got a bog standard free Mega account so it may be slow/restricted. Apologies for the issues with 'To The End', I'd forgotten about those.

I'm happy for this to be shared but please include my readme file if you do.

Interested in any constructive feedback ;)

Awesome, thanks for this Paul! I've listened through your recording, and I think it's great quality. It's definitely one of my favourite gigs, so I'm glad to have it in this sort of quality!

No problem mate :) I remember vividly recording this after England knocked Spain out of the Euros in 96, then going for a great night out afterwards!

Nite Klub's a highlight for me; I once got to put a question to The Specials via a radio phone-in asking if they'd return the favour and have Damon on one of their tours. They just laughed!! :D
