Partial show. Sound here is not quite excellent, but very good. Likely as good as it will get. This is all that was traded years ago and I do not think a longer copy exists. If it does it was not freely traded. Nice set and a rowdy crowd. Another show full of banter from Don ( and the crowd ). Great ( as usual ) version of " Owed T' Alex " that features a very nice live "fade-out" that seems a bit longer than usual. " The Dust Blows Forward And The Dust Blows Back " is also very good here. After the last track you can hear a count in happening for the nest song . . it was to be " Floppy Boot Stomp " the first two notes are on the tape and not included here. This is the first show out of two on thi night. I know that becase a person in the crowd menitons that he is going to party upstairs during the second show. Nice.

a fan in the crowd, " Lick my decals off ! "
Don from the stage, " You'll have to lick your own decals off ".
