 Size: 1 CD

 Sound: B+, AUD matrix
 Notes: Info from the guy who shared the show: "This is an upgraded audience recording of this show. I posted my version a couple of months ago but there were a number of bad cuts and pieces missing. A fellow trader, bubba420, sent me some alternative versions of this show that were also incomplete. So I set out to combine these different version together in order to come up with one more complete version. Thanks to these other versions, I was able to piece together an almost complete version of this entire show and this is the result. I actually tried to create a stereo version since I had multiple sources of this show but unfortunately, the transfers were at different speeds and I was unable to match them up exactly. The small parts that I was able to do sounded great but I just could never completely match up the speeds so the 2 channels would end up out of sync. Oh well. I tried. I still think this is a better version than the one I posted previously.
Megadeth: Guitar/Vocals: Dave Mustaine, Bass: Dave Ellefson, Drums: Gar Samuelson.
I was able to replace/repair all of the missing pieces except for the following: The beginning of "Love To Death" is not here as the audio comes in about half way through the song. All of the versions I have either don't have "Loved To Deth" at all or the beginning is cut off. There is a bad cut in between "The Mechanix" and "Chosen Ones" during Dave's rap. This is the case in one form or another in all 4 versions of this show that I have. The very end of "Rattlehead" is cut off. All other versions besides my original one do not even have "Rattlehead" included in any form. I have created some artwork for this one and it is included. I tried like hell to come up with the original version of the logo with the skull and crossbones but this is the closest I was able to come. (If anyone out there happens to have that one, I would be eternally grateful if you could send it to me! Thanks!) The pic of Mustaine that I used is actually from this exact show according to my buddy that was there and sent me the pic. Sound quality still is not excellent but I do think it's an improvement over the original overall. At least it's more complete than the previously posted version. Enjoy!"
