Third night of his third and final residency (so far) at Hammersmith. Bob clearly wants to play though and seems reluctant to finish many of the songs.
Remember even if you have some of the Daves’ films already that at best your copies will be 2 generations poorer than anything in the Masters series, so get em all. These will be with original sound though many will feature as sound upgrades eventually with my two mates Yassou and Madhasse helping out.

Legendary Tapers Series #6
9 February 1993: London
Off-master copy of a recording by LTB (see also #2 in the series) from the
Hammersmith residency in 1993; (corrected later not to be recorded by LTB, but by LTA)
excellent sound; different recording than bootleg Just Like Zimmerman LB-2779 based on different crowd at end of d2t1; in comparison that one has hiss, hum, and is harsher; pop d1t8 4:11 caused by discontinuity
Notes for LB-5895 attribute the recording to LTA with the following lineage:
