UPDATE 1/23/2007 from Paul Scotton ~
David Lemieux, keeper of the vault, has provided a complete set list for 3/12/66.

Old data (may not be accurate) ~
Pico Acid test. David Sorochty: the unknown Jam in the 1st set sounds similar at times to You Don't Love Me, Hog For You Baby, Big Boy Pete, or even like Deep Elem Blues (the old way like on 12/1/66). This tape has apparently only recently (mid 1998) come into circulation.

Another tape has been in circulation for years dated 3/12/66 or 3/19/66 which contains Viola Lee Blues# (14.56), You See a Broken Heart (3.10), and Midnight Hour# (10.44). However this is not exactly a partial copy of 3/12/66. The versions of You See a Broken Heart and Midnight Hour# are the same as on the complete 3/12/66, but the Viola Lee Blues is definitely a different version. So hold onto those older tapes. The full 3/12/66 tape does not have that voice that cuts in after You See a Broken Heart that says "RAW". I can't tell who that is or how it got there.

David Dieterich: Bobby talks about the funky P.A. which is making popping noises after It's a Sin and BIODTL. Lots of talk about the ice cream man outside after the 1st set ends (after Next time).
