This is the first concert I ever bootlegged. Fearful of discovery, I kept the microphone concealed under my shirt, which will explain some of the scraping noises you hear. The recorder did not have auto-reverse and I did not think I would be able to change tapes unnoticed, so I did not carry a spare tape. I hit the pause button in a couple of places during the second set to be sure of having enough tape left for the encores. But in the event, I was overly cautious. As things turned out, some songs were needlessly omitted from the recording and I was left with plenty of blank tape to spare.
