Sound upgraded with outstanding LB-1137.

There are now three authored copies of this show, all sourced from the same camera: this one, the one authored by Vygi, and the third by an anonymous author. The anonymous author used a blue screen disk as the source. The whereabouts of the blue screen disk and the tape that it was sourced from is, unfortunately, unknown.

D264, while worth owning, was a worthy candidate for sound upgrading. This item was sound upgraded with the excellent LB-1137 and extensively edited to minimize obstructions and unsteady parts.

Unfortunately, there are many items in the catalog that are improvements over related items in the "Highlights" section. Thus, if you're a new user, you would do well to dig more deeply into the catalog before soliciting certain disks.
