Performed Live:

"Bone To Bone" and "Chiquita" had debuted with Joe in April 1979. Covers included on the album, such as "Think About It" and "Reefer Head Woman" had previously been performed by the band; in the case of the former at their very first show in November 1970, and in the latter during 1971. Regardless, these songs also appeared in the set while Joe was still in the band in 1979 while the band struggled to record an album. By the time Jimmy joined the band, "No Surprise" and "Remember (Walking In the Sand)" were included in the set.
