    1) While there are minor gaps in all sources at various places, there is a three-minute gap in the AUD patch (Sennheiser 421) during Drums, so only the SBD plays for part of Drums.

    2) Love the Space in this show, for some reason. Come to think of it, I love this show too.

    Remastering Notes (06/24/08):

    1) Portions of all songs were re-synced, except Friend of the Devil, Man Smart (Woman Smarter), Drums, and I Need a Miracle.
