From Digital Rush Review:  Taken from the DAT master, this recording can be described with three letters, OMG! The sound quality is incredible; all the nuances of Neil's cymbals come through with incredible clarity and presence. Geddy's bass, especially at the start of "Cygnus X-1", erupts with that great burbling noise you'd expect from a well isolated instrument. The bass overall is nice, tight, and clean. There is no hint of distortion anywhere. The crowd is present and adds great ambience, but at the same time they remain low in the mix and unobtrusive. Alex's rant is about him being a big star in Lebanon, getting kicked out, and ending up in Syria. All of this to music that sounds like a whammy bar version of the "Star Spangled Banner". As usual, it's very strange. I thought that the Mansfield show had great sound, but this one easily goes a notch ahead. I cannot recommend this show highly enough nor can I stress enough that this has to be played loud. Special thanks to A.E. for allowing us to work with this great master source. As with all Digital Reproductions releases, this is for free trade or blank media trade only! Do not buy, sell, or distribute for profit. Help keep the spirit of trading alive and well. -Original
