Notes:
Lou joined opening band Luna on "Ride Into the Sun" to close their set. That track is available only from this source. All previously circulating copies are derived from an inferior transfer of this tape done circa 1998. A cool aside: it appears that the original transfer made it into Lou's collection and is now housed at the NYPL with his other recordings.

I can also confirm that the short dropout during "Dirty Blvd" was a failure of the system at the venue, not the recording.

This recording is incomplete and is missing 14 songs. I forgot to start with fresh batteries, and they started to die. I attempted to swap them at the first tape flip and was spotted by a security guy. He started to come towards me, so I hastily put the mic and recorder away. He stopped, but continued to watch me throughout the rest of the show. Luckily, Moonraker issued a superior-sounding silver release of the entire show (minus the song with Luna).

Contrast Clause: This is a different source from the Moonraker release "Orpheum" and includes one song not on that release.

Interesting for the Luna version, the rest of the show is distant. I think the Luna act wasn't recorded.
