BIODTL (15!)

OK, another Chinatown Shuffle! They always amble right along with that catchy beat.

Also, I see that there's a BIODTL in this show, and just for fun, I've been putting "the number"—the starting number of beats—after the song title in parens in all my set lists. Sort of enhances the abbreviation (its all about respect!).

Any original E72 LP songs in this show? Why not signify with a small Ice Cream Kid, Rainbow Foot or at least an asterisk?

Cheers, Laser

I believe He's Gone is

the only one from this show to appear on either the original or the 2001 expanded remaster. I second you on hoping for some kind of graphic indicator for the tunes that have been issued in other forms: Ice Cream Kid for E72, Bozo Bus for Steppin' Out... I guess Rockin' the Rhein's date has all been released, so maybe we don't need a Hart logo, but Skull Orb for Hundred Year Hall -- there's a decent chunk of that that wasn't issued.

Hey laser, I think that 2nd set BIODTLs are a good sign.
Looking forward to this show!

There may be only one other Beat It On Down The Line from this tour that, like this one, is deep in the 2nd set -- the others are all 1st set. The other 2nd set BIODTL comes up a week later in Germany, coming right before a Dark Star I'm burning to hear.
