Show Notes
The tour was in support of The Last Record Album. The band had just finished doing 5 consecutive nights at Paul's Mall (small Boston Club of the era) and this performance was recorded at the Orpheum Theatre (2500 seats) on the night following that run. Perhaps the 5 previous nights help account for the band's over-the-top tightness and rhythmic pocket heard on this performance.

This show was originally broadcast live on WBCN 104.1 FM in Boston. There was at least one re-broadcast on WBCN about 6 months after the show.

Mix Notes
The main source for this 2-source mix is the FM re-broadcast for obvious reasons. It is very crisp and sounds fabulous! However, there are lots of drop outs and cuts throughout and there are 4 songs missing. All missing songs, cuts and dropouts were patched using the davmar77 recording. There are too many patches to mention them all but the big ones are an 11 second patch in On Your Way Down, an 11 second patch in All That You Dream and a 9 second patch in Romance Dance. There was also lots of extra stage banter between songs and crowd noise that was patched in for completeness including about an extra minute on the introduction from the house MC. Almost every song had at least one small drop out that was usually located in the beginning of the song. Those are hardly noticeable now. The 4 extra songs not included on the re-broadcast were One Love Stand, Rock And Roll Doctor, Down Below The Borderline and Sailin' Shoes. These are of course included here from the davmar77 source. The quality is considerably different than the re-broadcast but still nice quality. There are major problems with Down Below The Borderline from the PA or Radio on all sources. I did not make any attempt to fix anything here. It is simply included for completeness. It sounds fine at about 1:50 in.

All radio dj banter has been removed where possible.
