This is Rush's very first performance in Germany.
This recording cuts off near the end Bastille Day, so is missing In The Mood and Neil's drum solo.
Circumstances had been dropped from the setlist for all European dates toward the end of the tour, which would have been from April 23 and onward.
Something For Nothing and Cygnus X-1 were temporarily dropped from the setlist for all German dates.
Dropping a couple songs from the setlist seems to have been a pattern for German dates during multiple tours.

Bootleg Titles:
First Night in Germany, Invasion From Canada
