For Your Listening Pleasure: Digital edits and crossfades were used to create the effect that performances from different shows (over two summers) were rendered on one glorious night. A note for guitar freaks: if your speakers are hooked up correctly, Drew Zingg ('93) and Georg Wadenius ('94) are panned over to the left channel, and Walter Becker to the right.
