    Notes

    * Audience recording, VG-.
    * The sound is unbalanced for most of the show, favoring the left channel. This gets corrected on Disc 2 Track 5 at the 3:39 mark. Overall you can hear a little tape hiss as well.
    * Small clicks between Disc 1 Tracks 1&2, 3&4, 8&9, 9&10; Disc 2 Tracks 4&5.
    * Cut between Disc 1 Tracks 11&12, Disc 1 Track 12 & Disc 2 Track 1.
    * Disc 2 Track 7 cuts off abruptly.
    * Fadeouts on Disc 1 Track 12, Disc 2 Tracks 5&6.
    * Fade-in Disc 2 Track 1.
    * It doesn't seem any music is lost except for Disc 1 Track 12 which cuts off before the section in "Everybody Wants Some" where Dave works the crowd. Disc 2 Track 1 fades in and picks up right at the beginning of "Ice Cream Man" but omits Dave's customary spiel with the crowd before that. Disc 2 Track 7 cuts off abruptly with no fadeout.
    * The "heartbeat" section of "Romeo Delight" seems to be a little more up-tempo and louder as compared to how they did it in other '81 shows. Ed does a little more "noodling" in this show than in other shows during the "Cathedral" section of the solo.
    * Released in April 2004.
