Jaap’s version was exactly the same as mine! As on the Marseille-show the crowd is shouting “Assis, assis …”, because the people in front were standing up again.
The sound was muddy but I couldn't fix much without making new damage to the sound, so I decided to add only a little more treble. Smiles And Grins was cut in two parts with a gap, so I tried to improve this with a fade-in/out and I also reworked the beginning/end of the cd-r's by adding a fade-ins/outs.
