There was a break in my recording due to a media change near the end of the set. The missing section was restored using a 3.0-second splice from the mp3 source about 2:52 into Track 6.

Note: Show was billed as including Herlin Riley on drums, but he was not present. Shannon Powell plays drums on this recording.
