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.
