Concert Series Presents

The only known clear and acceptable soundboard recordings of the World Violation Tour that have been pressed on vinyl (3 LPs). The last 5 tracks (Personal Jesus through Route 66) are actually soundboard recordings from the Shoreline Arena Amphitheatre in Mountain View, San Francisco on July 21st, 1990.

Vinyl was pressed in a variety of colors, including (but not limited to) black, grey, purple, fuschia, yellow, cream (could be a lighter yellow), light blue, brown (though this looks more like a mixture of many colors to make brown), hot pink, cherry red, and sea foam green. Most of these are not solid colors, usually with streaks of other colors present.

Some sources claim that as few as 300 copies were pressed, however this is unconfirmed. These were distributed in the UK.

This is simply amazing. If the period sounds of Violator are your thing, you won't be able to fault this.
in comparison to more recent mode vinyl bootlegs available, I would say this boot is a complete snore fest. It may be from the World Violation tour but big deal...it is actually a rather dull performance and the sound is not perfect it lacks any ambiance. The more recent boots from 2013 onward are much better to have better sound better performances, the classic tracks like World In My Eyes, Enjoy The Silence, Personal Jesus are all played much much longer and better live in recent concerts than they are on this boot. As a fan of Mode was considering getting this but will likely pass. Would strongly recommend "The Italian Job" if you can find it. Complete show from 2017, audience + IEM mix so great mix of soundboard and audience for ambiance, great performance and also has their Bowie cover of Hero's...also triple vinyl and a much better boot than this
I think you're being slightly churlish? Given there was no official live release, it's possible as 90 as you will get from their classic era?

I purchased this, so I guess I'll find out if its real or not.
Perfect bootleg,perfect sound, gorgeous vinyl. Best live record You can find.
is there a story behind this bootleg? how long it has been available on vinyl?any clues on lineage of the source recording?
I have read that it was the only official soundboard recording of that tour. i got mine on ebay about 2 years ago. i also have a bootleg from the Pittsburgh stop of this tour but it sounds like somebody brought in a tape recorder and taped it from the lawn section of the pavillion.
Some comments below about this release having 'Cure' on the second record instead of Depeche Mode. )) http://forums.depechemode.com/forum/showthread.php?t=34225

The reverb is there because the soundboard mix was intended for the PA system in a large outdoor stadium. In 101, there's a scene near the end where Alan and the guy who handled the live sound (as opposed to the Westwood One Mobile recording used for the movie and album) talk about how, being in a (different) large outdoor stadium, they had to "keep wetting it" (adding more reverb) to get it to sound right live.
I'm not sure about that. The first download doesn't have any lineage listed. I think I've got an audience recording of this somewhere but the quality isn't very good.
Thanks! Is there a difference between the two megaupload shares?My experience: 6xURL (clicks & pops) vs 5xURL +pass (no clicks)Are they two different rips or the password protected one is a cleaned up version of the other one with (vinyl) noise reduction?
There's a link for the vinyl version in FLAC here http://www.depeche-mode-world.de/forum/ftopic1847.htmlI wonder what it would have sounded like without the reverb? Seems kind of strange to add it on.The lineage is stated as Lineage: 3x Vinyl LPs -> ripped using DC Magic Audio (unknown settings) -> Impulse Noise Reduction, right channel boosted 2dB, reverb added (unknown amount) -> .WAV -> FLAC level 8 -> you Ripper: vnvdeibel Mastering: michadm
