  • *Weir says this song is a "drummers' choice." As if.

    Other issues
    NFA fades in at the beginning.
    Some of the between-song space is cut in set I.
    First 10 seconds or so of Terrapin vocals are cut.
    Tape flip between Terrapin and drums.
    Drums and space have been assembled seamlessly and may be reassembled.
    A little hiccup at 0:15 of Truckin'.
    Splice at 0:06 of Lovelight, missing about 5 seconds.

    If anybody has any idea what the hell Bobby is talking about before "Let It Grow," I'm all ears.

    Thanks to Stephen B. Porter, wherever he is these days, for the recording.
