Big thanks to SH for sending me his master tapes to be transferred. This is my first time seeing this recording in circulation. The recording misses "Terrible Lie" but starts right as "March of the Pigs" begins. A few dropouts at the beginning, but that's it. Very good tape! Recorded all of Bowie's set as well, but that is not hosted on the archive. It will only be available on DIME. Tape flip comes right after "Down In It" and misses the beginning of "Eraser." This is the 16 bit version. This can be burned directly to CD. Again, only the NIN portions of these sets will be available on the archive. If you would like the 24 bit version, it is available on DIME and the NIN Drive. For the Bowie portion, it will only be available on the DIME release.

Incomplete, "Gave Up" fades in. Really, an unlistenable recording. Everything sounds distorted. This came as two long wave files. I assume were transferred from a cassette. Fade ins/outs at the end of the tapes. I went ahead and tracked out the show.

I forgot that I had this and never uploaded it to the show page itself… David Williams was the editor of this show and highlighted this bunch on his Vimeo page back in 2010. He spoke to the ninhotline in October of 2010 and had this to say about the project, “This shoot was when Virgin Records was going under and did not have the money to finish. The footage is lost forever. I was the editor of record for this project. This concert was probably never paid for to the production company due to the snafu with the label.”The vimeo page has since been deleted. But thankfully, someone grabbed all the footage from the site for me to store for this long until I realized I never posted it! I remember back when it first was uploaded that David mentioned in a comment on the video that this was recorded in Phoenix of 1995. This may be the only footage that will ever surface professionally from the Outside Tour and it’s some great stuff. These video files have been corrected from the original files posted on Vimeo. Specifically, the display aspect ratio has been corrected to 4:3, audio sync has been corrected, and audio channels have been balanced and boosted on the workprint (required a re-encode).
