My DAT is labeled 1st set and at the end someone on stage says they'll be back for another set, but I think this is all I recorded that day.

The recording is bass heavy to my ears, may cause distortion on some playback systems, but I have left it un-EQ'd. Those of us who choose to can turn down the bass when playing back.
