This was the last of the DT releases from Prism Records, and the soundboard recording from LA is disappointingly low quality - muddy/undefined sounding like a super-lossy MP3, and noisy on top of that. I recall reading somewhere that it was a webstream, and that seems about right, because things were streamed in bad quality in the early days of the internet due to most people's bandwidth being low.

The light at the end of the tunnel is the amusing version of Surrounded. This was from a show in Nottingham, England 1993 where James LaBrie went after an audience member who was singly loudly, so Portnoy ended up singing the rest of the song since LaBrie was taking a while to return to the stage. "It's Mine, But You Can't Drive It" is also Portnoy singing a modified version of Discotheque by U2, which was sometimes incorporated into Metropolis during this tour. Some versions of this CD may have hidden tracks or extra tracks which are an unknown 1994 performance of Lie, and a live version of Metropolis with Charlie Dominici singing (probably his last show at The Ritz in NYC).
