This is a good show,the songs are played thunderously,especially Station to Station. At the back of this icehockey arena there was a chair,upon which sat Mr Iggy Pop. He sat and stared with rather a boring face,but according as Bowie played longer,Iggy grew wilder! During the encores he was dancing on the stage! On the tape one can hear someone scream “There’s Iggy!” (in Swedish) at that moment.
After Changes the sound of all the songs is different from before. Bowie’s voice is hardly discernable,being over-powered by Stacy Heydon’s guitar.
Jean Genie and Rebel Rebel are playes as encores.
This tape also circulates under the name ‘Oslo 25-4-76’,even though Bowie didn’t play Oslo in 1976.

iZotope RX2 denoiser to remove hiss
Small gap in Station To Station (1:30-1:34). Fixed by patch from the Noggin version (Maxell UD90 tape, then lineage as above). Clean.
Gap at 5:27 in Waiting For The Man – fade-out/in.
Tape flip between Queen Bitch and Life On Mars? One is the same as the first gap, see below.
Two small jumps at the start of Life On Mars? (at 1.3 and 5.5 seconds, removed with fades).
Join (on source tape) in crowd noise just before start of TVC 15 – different timbre from this point onwards. Volume reprofiling to these tracks as well.
Rebel Rebel cuts out shortly before the end.
Sector boundary errors tidied with TLH.
