the compilers supposedly used a 1983 setlist as a guide (as did the superior sounding but much maligned "Golden Years"
single cd comp) and there are 15 songs from that tour on here. though it isn't really noticeable when its mixed in with all the other tracks
the 6 LP looked amazing but sadly Rykodisc's inexplicable and perverse mastering makes it unlistenable for me
and the 2003 set i bought had disc rot - clearly the universe doesn't want me to own this compilation- i take the hint!

Does anyone know if the 1989 CD's suffer from disc-rot/bronzing the same way European CD's also manufactured by PDO tend to?
