Welcome back to the series of probably uncirculated audience recordings. So the story goes, Tape Man Joe attended many concerts. Joe used a Sony D6 with either a Sony 929 or 939 microphone (memories have faded on which exact mic) and TDK metal tapes. Joe made a few copies and gave them to friends but never actively traded his recordings. Recently Joe lent a few of his masters to his friend, Jungleland user G (a generous collector himself who has lent tapes from
his collection to help upgrade many shows). G asked me to finish off the transfers and post them.

Joe's master now gives up four different recordings from this show. Five if you consider the audio from the DVD. It is not the best of the bunch (the transfers by Cre01 and Mjk5510 are both better). It's distant, boomy with a consistent echo and plenty of audience participation. Anyways, folks like to collect them all so here you go.

Thanks to Tape Man Joe for recording and sharing his tapes and G for transferring the files.

From Brucbase WikiDot:

A Brucebase reader present comments "That night, it was insanely hot in Philadelphia, during the day the temperature was well over 100 degrees. By show time it was around 90 degrees. Oh yeah, add in 100% humidity. (I am not exaggerating) Now, Veterans Stadium was a round stadium so the air did not circulate at all. So you can imagine how bad the heat was. To this day, when I watch a video of that show, I start sweating. Anyway, at some point in the encores I believe, Bruce yells out,
"I need some air conditioning." Starting at the next tour stop at the Meadowlands in New Jersey, Bruce's road crew rigged cold air blowers from underneath the stage. This was the first time it was ever used. "Sherry Darling" includes a snippet of "Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey!" in the outro.
