• May 2023 Update: Many apoligies for the extended period of inactivity, however many big changes for Rush Archives are now in progress. This should benefit everyone, and propel the site onward in the most realistic way possible. Thank you to those who have been supporting this project, and for being patient with the methods I've so far been operating. Further details will be coming soon.

The recording cuts off temporarily at the very end of Cygnus X-1, only missing the last verse "sound and fury...", then starts again at the very beginning of Anthem.
This recording is missing Cinderella Man, which would've been the second encore after Neil's drum solo.
This is one of the best sounding audience recordings from the AFTK tour, the only real problem is the semi-frequent volume fluctuation from the tape recorder being moved around.
I imagine the volume fluctuation could be smoothed out with a lot of dedicated time and patience.
Luckily, this recording is very enjoyable to listen to, and the fluctuation doesn't detract from it too much.
