– Thank you, we want to introduce you to someone in our band, heís come here from England, a fine person and a very good guitar player,
Mr. Mick Ronson. (after Isis).
– Everybody recognizes this is Scarlet Rivera standing over here on our right, give her a hand – we also have three drummers, Howie Wyeth,
this is Ringo Starr. (before I Threw It All Away).
– This is an underground song, underground – (before One More Cup Of Coffee).

– This is a show in transition between the first and the second Rolling Thunder Revue tours. Some arrangements will be used later in
1976 and some remain from the 1975 tour.
– Dylan starts I Threw It All Away before switching to One Too Many Mornings, who has the additional lyrics “Iíve no right to leave and youíve no right
to stay, weíre just one too many mornings and a thousand miles away.”
– First known live version of Positively 4th Street since Sydney 13 April 1966!

version “a” LB-2263 is more muffled; on t10 version “b” was similar quality while version “a” was more muffled;

There are 4 LB numbers assigned, with ratings ranging from C to B-. LB-0489, LB-2263, and LB-2572 are probably the same source(s) but are mastered differently; LB-4304 may be composed of three different sources. It’s a For Completists Only party.

Source: “I believe this is an unusually spirited performance, although the recording is below average. This is actually a splice of two separate tapes. Both have been equalized.”

(I think the samples below might differentiate the qualities of the two sources.)
