What problems there were on the original boot have been
corrected by 4DaFunk and the drop-outs during 'Now' (being the most obvious)
have been flawlessly edited out. The quality of the recording was already
exceptionally good, however Prince's mic level and guitar did create some
distortion in places - again these have been equalised and are far, far less
noticeable on here. The show itself is an excellent document of the 1994
concerts with a number of interesting and unique moments. 'Dark' includes the
recited "Will the defendant please rise, kindly state your name for the court"
lyrics from 'Eye Hate U' along with an extended guitar solo - far removed from
the various other performances of this song. There is also an early performance
of 'Glam Slam Boogie' with some added lyrics from 'I'm In The Mood' before the
show is brought to a close with 'Peach'.
Not only is the content of this show one of the better ones from 1994, but the quality of the recording is amongst the best of the year too. 4DaFunk have again done a very impressive job of improving a much-loved release.
