Comments:
Jones Beach is a very good to excellent audience recording. The tracks from the Foxboro concert a few days later were part of the Walden Woods benefit concert that were broadcast on FM radio, These recordings were three months into their USA tour at the start of the Get A Grip World Tour.
The CD likes to list the solos although it lists the solo before Last Child as Joe's when it is Brad's.

Comments:
Excellent stereo. Remaining 4 tracks of
Upper Darby concert featured on The Ultimate
Killer Show. Milk Cow Blues is mistitled as
Going Down. The Central Park 1975 concert
is a A King Biscuit Flour Hour FM Broadcast
and one of a number containing a different
selection of tracks. It has an excellent raw
sound with numbers from their new Toys in
the Attic album.
