Thanks go out to Dayle Gloria for the show info.

Recording Information:

Average quality audience recording. 50:21. Rough/warbly in some parts. Bass is very quiet. The guy making the recording is an enthusiastic fan, and can sometimes be heard talking to his buddy about the show ("Oh yeah, 'Ted', I fucking love this song!"). Sounds like the last second or two of "Up The Beach" can be heard at the start of the recording, meaning that it was likely the first song of the show but cut from the recording. "Ain't No Right" is cut near the end at about 2:34.

Notable Moments:

This may be the earliest show to feature the extended intro jam to "Had A Dad". One of the earliest, at least.


This was back when they didn't play "Jane Says" live very often, so it's a bit of a treat for the crowd.
