The so-called 'Freedom day' concert was broadcast with Prince's permission and consequently the sound quality is first-rate. As is the show - very tight and funky with great performances of 'Joy in repetition' and 'One of us', amongst others. The Oprah Winfrey show is a mixed blessing. The music is good, very good even, but the interview has the potential to make you feel nauseous. Prince goes on about his undying love for Mayte, his supposedly 'split' personality and what it is like to be 'free'. The crowd laped  it up but then this is Oprah! Part of a Paisley Park press conference rounds off the bootleg but the sound is very quiet and it's hard to make out everything that's being said.
