  • Three recordings are available. The first (tape a) includes the Orbital set only. (Note that a longer version of their set, as broadcast on NRK radio, is available here.) This recording has very good sound quality.
  • The second recording (tape b) includes the full show apart from the first track.
  • The third contains edited dance and international tracks including half of the first track missing from the second recording.
