Here it is, the very first Dream Theater show with Mike Mangini behind the drum kit. The show was taped with a voice recorder and so it is unfortunately the quality is not very good. However in a transatlantic effort BobS has made a good improvement on the raw recording.
There is moments on the recording that are better and worse, phasing here or there due to movement, wind, or the recorder being moved, but there are no major anomalies to report, and the entire show is present.
I've simply acted as a contact to various parties involved and have compiled the information and the show, and it's been awesome to help on such a historic show such as this one!
Please do not sell this show or convert to lossy formats.

First of all, I wish to thank Nick for being extremely kind and understanding, and of course DA MAN himself, the huge bobs23
who took a low quality raw stram (if I told you why was the stream Low-Q you would laugh at me for life!) and made it blossom into a very sounding bootleg. Big props to him, he's been amazing!
And of course, I would like to show you my (little) share of the cake: the front cover I made for this record (it was already posted a while ago, but what the fuck
At the moment, I have only managed to upload the show on dimeadozen (need to buid some ratio), but in a few days direct links to the show will be provided here for the joy of y'all!
Well, at this point all that is left for me to say is:
"Please, enjoy this little present from us, forgive us if you wished for something bigger or better, and most of all, keep the Dream alive!!"
