Comments Total time [2:18:31 +]. This was preceded by a NRPS set to make up the complete show. After Beat It On Down The Line Phil announces a "short break" to deal with technical difficulties.

This version of Big Railroad Blues has novel lyrics.

The newly circulating CDs of this show have most of Easy Wind, all of Till The Morning Comes and the first 1:15 of Truckin' patched in from an inferior source; it has a cut near the end of Black Peter, and is missing China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider. These defects can be patched or improved from the old cassette SBD, which includes the China Cat Rider.
