"Master clone" (as labelled) kindly supplied from GaoBest and TMK.  Better versions have since showed up since the original writeup which do not have the glitches / bleed-through mentioned below.

Your Silent Face

Huge glitch (like the tape was chewed up) from about 2:30 - 3:00.

Interesting announcer-type male voice from 3:25 - 3:50.

Dunno if this is tape bleed, a sample used by the group, or some other form of interference. I'm betting the latter. Another similar glitch between 5:10 - 5:20...definitely seems to be damage on the master tape.

This interference runs throughout, and is really strange, as it's not backwards (indicative of bleed-through).

Dreams Never End and Ceremony follow.

Tuning between Procession and Temptation.

Break in tape between In A Lonely Place and Senses. The beginning of Senses has a pretty clear sample of what runs in parallel.

A bit of tuning before Denial.

Age Of Consent

lyric: "I wish I was black and I had a six foot dick/ I'd shove it down your throat and make you sick."

There's an internal cut after about 5:15, this must have been where the original A/B flip point was.

A classic version!

Blue Monday

We only have the last 1:10 from this, and it sounds like it originates from a different (higher-gen) source, but is in stereo and is quite a bit hissier than the rest of these tracks, as well as possibly being pitched too fast. Of course, the importance of this can't be overstated, as this is the debut live performace of this seminal track.
