"I Can't Dance" wasn't taped and has been patched in from Fabio's source.

Taper's comments:

You can hear us setting up the mic and at 44.47 someone comments on the sony mic. I think the band had sound issues and we turned off the recorder for a moment. You can hear the classic empty beer bottles being tossed into the garbage can and the phone ring once or twice. It was raining and the crowd was thin. We would attach the mic above the crowd on a fixture that ran up the wall on Johns side. If there was a side (-: You would have to duck under his guitar to get to the bathroom.

Thanks to John Moses for providing his tapes and John Bleich for doing the transfers.
