This is from a CD-R set I have, compiled from three shows - Ottawa 28th August 1987, Sydney 3rd November 1987, and Sydney 4th November 1987
Loving The Alien is particulary good here - nice flute at start + echo on Bowie's voice. Never Let Me Down and Big Brother seem worthy of mention too as standouts here too.
There is a sign of a little disc rot here and there - most noticeably as Modern Love starts.
But it's a good compilation, and the 4th November 87 tracks seem harder to find - from what I've seen - than the rest here.
If this is for you - enjoy.
