This show was performed in a lecture hall or small theater at the C.W. Post Campus, because "The Dome" had recently collapsed in a snowstorm. It was not held in the Tilles Center (which probably didn't exist then).
Shades of Spinal Tap: According to Peter Hedeman, the band arrived late due to snow, and ran into the building, following the microphone snake. They followed it the wrong way and busrt into the area where the WLIR truck was located. "It was pretty funny, the shocked look on their faces." At the end of track 4, EC apologizes for being late, and explains that the door fell off their bus, so they arrived by car and had no time to do a soundcheck. That's probably why the first track on the master cassette was slightly cut off. The encore is dedicated to their driver, the "Miracle Man."
