king of pain (first twenty seconds patched in from source one to make a complete version)
don't stand so close to me
every breath you take
murder by numbers

can't stand losing you/regatta de blanc/ilkley moor
so lonely (intro barely audible on source 2 patched in to complete)

There are two recordings of this show both recorded by people called paul. The first, complete and inferior version has been used for voices/synchronicity/synchronicity2/(and the majority of) walking in your footsteps. The person who recorded this version also recorded Blackpool a few days earlier. I traded tapes with him for many years. This first version can best be described as rough. The second superior recording is incomplete and starts at the very end of walking in your footsteps so the track split to message in a bottle on this upload is slightly early to maximise the use of the superior version. The person who recorded this version was responsible for many bootleg recordings made in the yorkshire area from the 80's and 90's.

On entering the stage sting says "hello leeds, how are united" he does not say "make some noise now" as appears on the partially fake youtube of this gig. Nor does he say "i don't know what this is called" prior to walking in your footsteps he says "it's nice to be back in yorkshire" (hence the title i've given this). The "make some noise" comment and the three songs after that which begin the youtube "version" appears to come from st austell three days later. The second version tape flip is prior to king of pain and so that is where i have split cd one and cd two. From the artwork included it looks like this is the first time the disc split has been in the right place. The opening twenty seconds of king of pain which was missing on the superior second source has been patched in from the inferior source one to complete a whole version. Two versions of so lonely are included. The complete version from source two where the opening few lines are barely audible and a patched version using the intro from source one to make a complete version. This show is presented without a single second of music missing. Next time you see someone claiming to be a 'huge fan' or 'obsessive' ask them if they spent three hours replacing forty seconds of music in a 34 year old recording and joining other bits together.

Artwork for previous incomplete and faked complete versions included.

scans of original cassettes and cards and ticket also included. Those for source one are in original tapers handwriting!
