Produced by yassou on a MacBook Pro running El Capitan 10.11.1 and Apple software.
Audio and video assets edited in iMovie 6.0.3; authored, multiplexed and burned to VIDEO_TS folder in iDVD 7.1.2 (Professional Quality 2-pass variable bit rate encoding)

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.

None other than info posted above in VIDEO SOURCES & LINEAGE.

Bob came back to the UK this open air gig. A very boisterous audience who are enjoying themselves but not helping the taper any. Still seeing this again after some time I am surprised, despite its obvious faults its a sharp film that catches the atmosphere of the gig nicely. A nice performance, the group seem well pumped up and are in good form.

bittorrent download 02/09; nothing above 16k; does not have lego parapets; in 3-way comparison these are different recordings based on different crowd at end of t4; this is warmer fuller more upfront than NTI LB-5787 and LB-2419 is overly harsh; excellent sound [A-]; background talking t5
I did not harm the sound of the recording in any way
