  • This recording captures most of the performed setlist, the only part missing is Neil's drum solo, which would've taken place prior to Cinderella Man. I can't really be sure why the entire drum solo is missing, I imagine the taper must've had to change tapes or batteries, or perhaps just wanted to save space to capture Cinderella Man.
  • This is another example from the AFTK tour of Geddy struggling to sing Fly By Night, completely omitting several verses because he's struggling to hit the notes without cracking. Recordings like this one really show why Fly By Night was never performed again after the end of the AFTK tour in mid-1978.
  • While this doesn't rank as one of the best audience recordings of the AFTK tour, after a somewhat rough beginning, I still find it quite easy to listen to and enjoy.
