Features identical front cover to original release. Back cover photo is the same too, and is repeated on the back of the front insert along with the indisputable heading "Incredible Soundboard Recording".

The discs proclaim "Digital Remaster". The last two tracks are not listed, and are remixed versions of the performances on the UK "Wonderful Tonight" CD single, with extra applause most notably inserted at the very end of "I Shot The Sheriff" in order to avoid the rather brusque commencement of "White Room" during that era. (P.W. / R.B.)
