Assuming merely the introductory remarks of the show are missing, this recording showcases a relatively shorter set of the 1992 European tour itinerary it seems, with just 17 live songs, taken off of Repeater (5), In on the Kill Taker (5), Steady Diet (2), 7 Songs (2), Margin Walker (2) and the 3 Songs seven-inch (1). Note early set list appearances of Rend It, Promises and Blueprint.

As would be the case in 1995, the only time the band returned to Toulouse, the band performed at Le Bikini, a local yet renowned concert hall which opened its doors in 1983 and welcomed numerous national and international acts over the years.

Overall, I find the recording not all that engaging, mostly because the vocals are rather distant, the music trebly or thin because of the low range of bass frequencies. Note that there is a cut during Long Division as well, and a couple of seconds of the song are missing.

As to the performance, the gig starts off a bit sluggish, and at times it appears the band is straining it a bit. They appear to have taken a more loose approach to this show, e.g. note the altered opening arrangements to Blueprint as well as extended intros to Margin Walker or Merchandise, or even the instrumental improv during Encore 1.
