mine comes with twice record one (so 4Lp in all).

The concert is pure gold if you like the Earthling album...

...but in my opinion the sound suffers from rather bad EQ applied on the mix prepared for the "mothers" (it is supposed to be a dmm),
they cut nearly ALL the high frequencies,to hide the fact that they took an mp3 to prepare the "mothers",
but you still hear the defects of the mp3,it's very subtle but when you got the chance to hear a crash cymbal/hi hat (Looking For Satellites),it's clear.
