There aren't too many recordings running around from Carbondale, so location gives this one points. However, So Lonely is missing (but it's debatable at this point in the tour whether it was even played at all) and this has quite a bit of tape hiss. This recording is cut during Can't Stand Losin' You, so I wonder if our taper only had one 90-minute tape. There is a cut that takes out the very start of One World as well. Why Roxanne and Can't Stand were put on the same index is beyond me, as the encore break is left completely intact. This suck a down grade because the tape hiss here is incredible. Location makes this desirable to completists, but with just a so-so '84 performance and so much hiss most everyone can avoid this. As an aside, our taper does announce the date and location of this show. -Original
