Unknown Song, Unknown Song, Time Flack, Fixin To Die, Compared to What, Basically Frightened, Workin On A Building, No Reason To Complain, Trondossa, Time Is Free, Salty Dog, Ain’t No Reason To Complain > Space Is The Place > Zambi (1:18)

This is a soundboard copy of the show, and the transfer info reflects that, but I don’t think it’s accurate. The only source information I could find was in reference to the AUD recording, which is on Archive.Org’s site.
In the AUD recording, there are only 12 tracks, so I did not have the info for the first 2 tracks in the show.
