Session Details: 

This is a recorded rehearsal. Songs are recorded more than once, but nothing is--strictly speaking--a master or an alternate (the sources do not distinguish, so we won't either). There is discussion and talking by all three musicians, but we aren't including that here. Nothing more is written in Lord about the talking except that it occurred. It just doesn't seem worth to list blank tracks for 'discussion' without any info regarding what, even was discussed. If people are interested, they can find it in the encumbent issues. Otherwise, this is a list of the musical tracks that were recorded during this rehearsal session.
