Kindly shared by Sim (SMores) in early 2014, ie. 25+ years after the show the tape surfaced! SMBTapes comments on the tape: "Here is another Megadeth show that as far as I can tell is uncirculated and is sourced from a 1st gen cassette. This show isn't in the db.etree.org database, nor is it on the few Megadeth trading sites I've come across, so if not completely uncirculated it is at least pretty rare. Megadeth.com's tour history confirms the date as April 17, 1988, and Dave mentions the city during the show, as well as having played universities during the tour, so the location and venue are confirmed as well. Someone close to the taper is obviously unhappy about the setlist during the encore break".
Warlock and Sanctuary were also on the bill that night. The recording is good, however sometimes it becomes quite muffled. Dave: "You are the best university we've played so far!" However if you are into a quality recording i'd recommend the one from the day after, the recording which is quite common among collectors. Sound is a little distant but nothing crucial. No crowd interference 'cept for the aforementioned encore chant. I assume the recording can be remastered but atm (March 2014) I simply do not have time/will to do it. Once again i'm deeply grateful to Sim for sharing this tape with me and the rest of the world!
