Nice tape, nice show. Bob Minkin took some nice photos this night, a bunch of tapers nailed it, the band sounds strong. This must have been a great, weird old room.

! Recording: symbols: % = recording discontinuity; / = clipped song; // = cut song; ... = fade in/out; # = truncated timing; [ ] = recorded event time. The recorded event time immediately after the song or item name is an attempt at getting the "real" time of the event. So, a timing of [x:xx] right after a song title is an attempt to say how long the song really was, as represented on this recording.
