cut before encore
I did not harm the sound of the recording in any way
bittorrent download 04/08; excellent sound [A]
small discontinuity pops on right channel d2t5 4:11, 4:22, 4:28, 4:38, 4:44 plus more like this on d2t5 to d2t7

Sixth, final 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

This is a continuation of my retired friends original films
Most have been around before but never taken from the Master
recording as these are and in many cases not complete as here.
This flood will be a little slower than the last give you slow uploaders a time to catch up. But to start things off here is a nice hot show from Brixton in '95

Sorry been a while life keeps getting in the way !
Anyway Here's the sixth and final night of the residency. A nice performance, the group seem well relaxed and are in good form. The songs of course continue to get longer and longer! Mr Stewart makes a return appearance on Highway 61 Revisited
I would say this is a little more obstructed than the previous show but its still quite watchable.
