Comments (1) broken string after Black Peter. It is possible that this represents two sets, with the break occuring between Death Don't Have No Mercy and Cumberland, but it seems more likely that the entire show consisted of a single long set. Good Lovin' starts side B of the cassette in circulation and cuts in on "asked my family doctor." The beginning and end of Cumberland Blues are clipped, and the beginning of Me And My Uncle. There is a brief cut in Cosmic Charlie at 5:01. River was also on the bill (DeadBase IX).
