  • The present recording of this concert is incomplete
and most likely based on an audience recording.

First And Last And Always, Body And Soul, Detonation Boulevard,
Flood II, Valentine, Amphetamine Logic, Gimme Shelter, Jolene, Something Fast
and maybe Marian, though, the latter was not confirmed on the setlist.

- First Edition with generic white cover (back)
  • Comes in a generic sleeve with a silver printed black sheet centrally glued to the front.
The basic sleeve has so far been seen in three colours: white, brown and dark brown.
and was possibly copied directly from there.
  • Beyond that there is a track list in a rectangle underneath, giving also the total running times of each side of the record. Lucretia, My Reflection is, however, listed merely as Lucretia.
  • The labels show a No Man logo, that is a b/w inverted close-up picture of an eye with the letters "NO MAN" underneath (see the pictures on the left and down below). They are numbered (Side I / Side II), but do not give any information about the track titles or the running times of the songs.


This bootleg was released in at least two edtions.

  • The first edition is limited to 500 hand-numbered copies.
  • All copies are stamped in purple colour with an small image of a grinning Joker holding a Batman mask.
Underneath this picture the number of the record is filled in in handwriting in a blank space like:
It seems to be more than just an extraordinary coincidence that the same stamp was used to number part of the second edition of the bootleg The Grief before.
  • The second edition is allegedly also limited, this time to 1000 copies.
  • Allthough, the cover is widely identical to the one of the 1st edition,
it has no stamp or numbering on the cover back.
