  • This is the last known recording of Circumstances until the S&A tour in 2007, since the song was dropped from the setlist during the European leg of the Hemispheres tour.
  • This recording captures nearly the entire concert, however the tape ends before Neil concludes his drum solo.
  • The guy taping, or next to the taper, provides a lot of commentary to his friend throughout, and occasional "singing along", which is very prominent in the recording. This may or may not be detracting for some people listening to this show. If you've heard all the best Hemispheres tour recordings, this one may be an interesting change of pace for you. The taper/talker seems to be quite familiar with Rush and seems to be introducing Rush's music to his friend for the first time.
  • This is not one of the better audience recordings of the Hemispheres tour, though other than a few rough areas, it is overall still easily listenable if you don't mind the commentary.
  • The best quality version had this really awful tape whirring for the first two and a half minutes of the Hemispheres Prelude, making it completely impossible to hear any music. For the recommended version, since this part of Hemispheres was destroyed by tape damage, I had no choice but to replace that section from a much poorer quality copy of this same recording.
