This is one among several of the better quality audience recordings of the Hemispheres tour, in regards to sound quality and the band's performance.
There is a very short cut during The Trees, Hemispheres, and Temples of Syrinx, otherwise this recording captures the entire performance.
There is a weird chipmunk-like vocal effect used very quickly during By-Tor, which I've never heard used during that song before, rather usually during Geddy's intro to La Villa Strangiato.
Geddy's scream at the end of Cygnus X-1, "every nerve is torn apart", is one among several of the strongest recordings I've heard of him delivering those lyrics.
