6 Unidentified Instrumental 04:11

There are four uninterupted sequences on Jerry's reel. The * after timings indicates that track as being the end of one of those sequences.
Intermittent equipment buzzing on stage.  It primarily effects the quiet parts between songs during the first half of the set.
The opening number, "Matty Groves," begins shortly in progress just before Sandy sings the first verse.
"It'll Take A Long Time" and "John The Gun" are incomplete.
"Hexamshire Lass" is introduced by Swarbrick during track 13, but was apparently not recorded.

Although not without issues, this is superior quality to all circulating copies of this recording and is more complete than most.  Unlike many versions making the rounds, "Like An Old Fashioned Waltz" is complete and the second encore is included. The second encore is an instrumental, but is not one of the standard Swarbrick fiddle medleys common to this era.  If anyone can better identify that last track, please do.
