The sound quality is great, but the package aesthetics are lame. The title is generic. There is no historical and/or venue info. The cover photo is from the tour, but it's been ruined by having been  printed over for no reason. An early 90s loophole in the copyright law of Australia allowed these discs to be sold providing they plainly stated that they were not authorized. This one just goes a tad overboard. The covers of the CDs in this series are a billboard type advertisement to try to sell the CD, rather than a heartfelt effort to release a collectible piece. This one is a perfectly quiet soundboard tape with very little to no audience (even between songs). The source is an FM broadcast from Hartford Connecticut's WHCN Radio in June of 1989. There are a few of the concert songs missing from this disc, however. The show itself is good, though not particularly remarkable. If you are interested in this performance, there are better releases of it. Leave this one for the completeists.

Note by David:
The spelling of Unauthorised on the front cover is not  wrong, it's just the original English version of the word as opposed to the American spelling. Proper English, as practiced in the majority of the world, uses s instead z for all past-tense -ized words. It's another example of the divergence of the two interpretations of the English language over the years: colour/color; favour/favor and the final -re: theatre/theater.
