Badgeholders Weekend is the third release in the past two years of this show, coming after Delirium Treatment on Tarantura and Saturday Night’s Alright on Wendy. This is the excellent stereo audience recording used for all releases of this show. This one, along with the June 27th tape, is a bit heavier in the bass than the other tapes produced by this taper. It sounds like Badgeholders wanted to brighten it up a little by cranking up the volume and filling out the high end with horrid results. With so many different versions of this show floating around this title can be safely avoided.
