I came across the Sacramento Music Archive and I am always blown away at people's commitment to preserving music. Awesome stuff there and just sent some pleasantries to Shayne. I got a message back saying that he recorded the show! It sounded like it hadn't been transferred so I was excited to hear it. I did think it was uncirculated but this is actually SOURCE 2 on the archive with some misinformation. Probably lost in the pipeline along the way. Originally we had this from a cassette dub to DAT and a few generations from the master tape. This is an exceptional upgrade for this tape and sounds a lot better! Great to have the right source information as well for this one. Big thanks to Shayne transferring and sending over their tape!!!

Notes from Shayne: Ryan Jonik (Nine Inch Nails Archive website curator) messaged me and let me know that my NIN DAT recording from Lollapalooza was uncirculated. This was the first big show I taped with the DAT- I got it less than 4 weeks before the show. I was all stressed out with trying to sneak the gear in, but it was easy. I snuck in the TCD-D3, 2 battery packs, Sony ECM-909 mic, Marantz PMD-430, 2 nakamichi CM-300 mics, and a hundred feet of mic cable. We put the battery packs in the bottom of snack cracker boxes, and the PMD430(which is HUGE) rolled in a blanket. So funny. I did not remix this- it has a surprising amount of low end, considering the mic. I was super sick at the show, so you can hear me coughing at times.

This is a different source than the other two sources from this date. Sadly, it is incomplete and cuts during "Ringfinger." Not sure if this is a complete source, but I would have to assume this is the whole recording. Decent tape. This is as good (or better) than the other two sources from this show. Some tape warbling during "Sin" and a few other parts. Could be because this tape is over 20 years old.
