review by Mick C
Broadcast live online via NPR.
This excellent quality soundboard was broadcast live via NPR.org and remained available via their website for some considerable time, therefore this is one of the recordings from the tour that almost everyone has.
I captured the audio for this myself with Audacity while listening to the live stream, although there are different (and in my opinion, inferior!) versions floating around. There's an MP3 version going around as a download as well as a version that has all the announcers chat edited out, which in my opinion spoils it greatly.
Quality is completely fantastic (unless you have the MP3 version of course!) and PiL pull off a truly remarkable performance.
Definitely the most recommended from the American leg.
