Comments: What a cool little show this is! The performance is definatly excellent, with Geddy opening The Big Money with "This is the Digital...Wait" hence the title, its pretty damn funny if you can beileve a master musician messing up, its very funny. The guys are pretty much electric tonight, even Neil seems to be in a good mood hitting the drums pretty hard as most of the time he does. Alex is really good tonight, even if he does have a few string breakings and a few mess-ups and wierd notes, he still sounds good. Geddy is in a funny mood tonight, as you can see by the ever so amazing intro the The Big Money. The sound is okay, nothing special, but its easy to listen to because the performance is so good. Its a little distant, with alot of crowd noise, but you can hear everyone at most times. There is some tape hiss, and a wierd airy mix and some distortion, maybe a little bit of a genneration this as this show is very old, and it might not be the master tapes, for all we know. A show for the collecters.
