NOTE: Fan-circulated clone of the original Silver Rarities
releases, with cover slips intended for double CD cases. At least three different sets of
cover slips are available. The original releases are reliably reported as improperly mastered, markedly slowed down from the original recording; no doubt some fan variants have been speed-corrected.
rmd: An extraordinary performance. The music of rebirth.
The passion and joy here makes Saved sound all the more
empty and limp. This show might win you over if you don't yet
appreciate Bob's gospel. The sound quality of this audience
recording, sadly, is merely very good.
