- reel 1 was possibly the first set which, according to my source, also includes a test recording made during the soundcheck. Distortion and fragmentation made this unsuitable for release
- the late start on reel 2 is due to the fact that the Columbia recording engineers were outside in a mobile truck with no visual cues as to what was going on in the club
