  • This source followed cassette taping ritual; the Encore was recorded on tape 1, B side, after the end of Set I, where blank tape still was plentiful. The show's song order was re-assembled. The taper also paused (ran out of tape?) during s2t06 "He's Gone" and resumed moments before s2t09 "Wheel" develops. This part of the concert (/s2t06-s2t08) is patched with the Clugston SBD Source (shnID 12221), which was adjusted for editing purposes.
    - During last seconds of s2d05 "Women Are Smarter", fellow tenth row fan asks Danny Thomson ... "you should be in the tapers section" ... our steady taper replies "... shouuld beee ... [grinning I'm sure...]. Classic!
