review by TIM BUCKNALL

The recording is mostly clear but has some bass distortion. There are cuts between every song. The start of 'Poptones' and most of 'Bad Baby' are sadly cut.

Boston was already the longest show of the tour and the addition of the soundcheck is very welcome. You can hear Keith & John asking for the levels to be turned up.

There seems to be a few audience members attending the soundcheck as you can hear scattered applause between the songs. 

A fascinating document from PiL's peak period: recommended…
