I had a bad copy of this recording and said that there were beeps every 3-5 seconds in it. But I guess that it was a bad rip of the recording or something. I just got a new copy and uploaded it (01/2011) and it sounds much better!

First knew about this recording last year. Duke2004 was kind enough to get these out of storage and send them my way October 2021. We have traded in the past during my Depeche Mode days of trading. He taped a lot of shows up until 2010 and I had no idea he did so many Nails recordings. This is the first one I have received. It sounds fantastic. There was a problem with the recording during 'Even Deeper' so there is a slight skip and missing a few seconds of the track.

Thanks to Travis Bickle of VHS Rewinds, he was kind enough to send the raw master of the master tape! Another one filmed by master 8, we don't know the recording equipment because they used so many different recorders, just not sure at this point. Filmed from the balcony with some great close ups, some obstructed view but it gets better as the show goes on. With this being from the master tape, it does looks so much better than any of the other copies I have seen. TB is very meticulous with the transfers, but it seems like at the end during that last 3 songs there is some glitching that is probably on the master tape. Likely from sitting all these years. (Will look into keeping the DVD version uploaded if there are no glitches) The upgrade is also a few minutes more than the DVD version. In order to reduce the size to share on the archive, we used the above settings. This holds up with preserving the footage, but also being able to share it to the fans. It should be noted that the 20+ GB file is kept too. Thank you to Travis for transferring and Master 8 for filming and sharing their collection!
