* According to, Johnny played bass and Jon Paris played guitar on these tracks. At the end of Rave On, Johnny says "Jon Paris on bass" but a few minutes later, Jon says "Johhny Winter on bass" and repeats that after Everyday I Have The Blues. Jon Paris sings on Rave On and Everyday I Have The Blues.

Recorded shortly after the release of White Hot & Blue and about a month after Jon Paris and Bobby Torello joined the band. The date is correct, per the on-air announcer at the end of the show. A show at Park Meadows Racetrack, Shirley, NY, if it happened on this date, was earlier in the day.

The performance lasted 3.25 hours, of which at least 30 minutes is Johnny Winter's drunken ramblings. It's quite a performance nonetheless. The songs tend to run 15-20 minutes. Boney Maroney clocks in over 18 minutes and is reported to be the longest version ever.

Peter Hedeman recalls that Johnny Winter was "piss drunk" which is pretty obvious when he talks to the crowd. The crowd was pretty drunk too. At one point, a fan tried to make it out the emergency door but threw up a few feet shy, all over the audio snake, which Keith, the new guy, was assigned to clean. It must have been quite a scene, if Peter remembered it almost 30 years later.

The harmonica was mic'd too high (you can imagine Jon Paris playing directly into the mic) and it can be harsh and piercing. Keep your fingers near the remote, there's nothing else for it.

The recording came to be as three cassette tapes, which have been patched as follows:
- tape flip at 0:47:10 fade in/out
- weird tape stretch problem at 1:06:46, as if someone bumped the record button
- tape flip at 1:32:08 cross faded
- tape flip at 2:15:46 cross faded
- tape flip at 2:59 fade in/out
