An audience recording from either the 3 or 4 August. The original bootleg has appeared credited to both dates - Kraftwerk played both nights at this venue. There are performances here that you can imagine the likes of Afrika Bambaataa standing watching and taking on board as influences - the likes of It's More Fun To Compute especially.
What Was Done
The sound quality and volume varied widely from bright to muffled, so I did what I could to even that out. There are a few small cuts where the sound jumps - I smoothed those out as best I could but missing are a few seconds of Metal on Metal/Abzug, the beginning of Pocket Calculator brief parts between Pocket Calculator and The Robots, and early on in It's More Fun To Compute. There are a couple of points during the gig where the bass synths were so loud they literally rattled the PA and overloaded the recording a bit (brief bits of distortion, in other words). I've done what I could to reduce the effect of that.
Once that was done, I got to work with EQ and the usual studio toys to bring some clarity to the sound mix - this took a long time this time, given how varied the sound quality was throughout. I then mastered to make it clearer and more powerful overall, and wider. The result is far far better and a really good listen; I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Supporting The Site
If you want to support the work I do on these recordings, and the site, and (if you wish to) obtain separate, fully tagged 320kbps MP3s of this restoration for less than the price of a coffee in return, or lossless FLACs or even a lossless copy on CDR, head on over to the Rewards For Donations tab to see how you can obtain these for a very small donation towards the site costs.
There is no obligation to do so of course - you can take the
file on this page absolutely for free - but every single donation does
go towards this site and domain/storage costs, and helps the site stay
open, and helps me do more shows. Either way, enjoy the show.
