Depeche Mode
Münsterlandhalle, Münster, Germany
1984-1985 "Some Great Reward" tour

Lineage: unknown equipment and cassette type -> TDK SA90 high position tape, 1988 - 1989 stock -> Nakamichi Cassette Deck 1 (fresh belts, upgraded capstan motor, playback amplifier capacitors replaced, tape wound & rewound before transferring, azimuth optimized) -> Monoprice heavy-duty RCA to 3.5mm cable -> ASUS Xonar DX sound card -> in Adobe Audition CC 2014.2: sped up 2.0% using iZotope Radius method, hard limited mic bumps, normalized to -0.1dB and any DC bias removed, "See You" to the end of the tape normalized to bring the levels closer to the rest of the recording -> WAV (32/96) -> tracked using Audacity 2.1.0 -> WAV (32/96) tracks -> FLAC 16-bit 44.1khz using FLAC 1.3.1 64-bit (level 8 compression) and foobar2000 v1.3.8 with its Resampler (SoX) component v0.8.3 (best quality), dithering enabled
Taper: Elly A.
Generation: first
Transfer: ligushka (https://www.depechemode-live.com)
Cassette tape photos and auCDtectTaskManager log included

Notes: A good audience recording. The left channel is louder than the right for most of the concert. Some hiss is present overall, but it is not too jarring. "See You" through the end of the concert was quieter than the rest of the recording for some reason, so I normalized it again to -0.1dB to make the levels more even - this resulted in louder hiss for those tracks as well, however. Due to tape flip, "New Life" is missing the last few seconds of the song, and "Shame" is missing the first 35 seconds or so. Other than that, no music is missing from this recording as far as I know. "Leave In Silence" has some incorrect samples played at the beginning, and Martin sings "leave in silence" with a different inflection the last time those words are sung in the song.

Many thanks to Falko for generously lending me this cassette to transfer and master.
