editing notes:
d1t01: opening notes were recorded at very high volume and distorted, so I lowered the volume on them to match the rest of the show. There is still some evidence of the distortion.

-d1t01: small right channel dropout fixed at 1:23.
-d1t09: ending applause faded out
-d1t10: missing the first few notes. Faded the beginning in.
-d1t11: edited out silence between sets.
-d2t05, 07: created the intro track for DBTR.
-d2t08: tape flip at 4:40 faded in and out.

-I fixed dozens of small clicks on most tracks.

This is a personal favorite as I attended this concert. B Mitchell Reed, mentioned prior to Nowadays Clancy, was a popular radio DJ, who had passed away a few years earlier. This is also the first glimpse at The Blue Notes, when Neil brings them out between his solo set and the Crazy Horse set. Editing notes below are not mine. JJC
