Version

  • Two versions of this bootleg exist, both from the same master recording. This is the mixed version; the other is the unmixed split-channel version.
  • A early copy of this bootleg was originally traded, with the two channels mixed into a single dual-channel mono mix; that version has since been removed from circulation and replaced with these two versions.
