  • File 1 contains the first 94 minutes complete. File a and b and c are mainly the rock/indie/guitar tracks from the show, created from the SL Tapes. File a starts at the beginning of the show (in very muddy sound), though this improves after Howlin' Wolf. Tracks on file a marked ¶ to distinguish from the complete file. File d contains dance/electronic tracks (marked §) and File (e) contains a further dance track also marked §, created from L013 of the SL Tapes.
  • The splicing of the dance tracks back into the running order is slightly speculative though the edits on the rock tracks match the number of dance tracks, and the odd track or intro appears on both rock and dance streams.
