Session Details: 

Losin gives specific notes on how each incomplete take, and which parts are incomplete, etc. There is a unique situation where there are multiple tracks of the same song, but since a) it's live and b) they could have been from different dates, they can't really be called "alternates" or "masters". So for now we'll just put nothing alongside their title. -JS

 

According to Losin, the dates and different locations are known, even if the individual set lists are not exact: May 8-9 was at the SAlle Pleyel, as were the 14-15. May 10-11 were at Rex Theatre in Marseilles, May 12 was at the Colisee Movie Theatre in Roubaix. -JS
