Now that you mention it, I think that's the version that I have.
I heard the "Best of" version first, so the first time I heard
the Song For America album version, it sounded weird with the
"extra" music in there. But I've heard both versions so many
times now, I never notice the difference any more.

Hmmmm, go see Van Morrison...or feed my family for a week or two.

Yep, that was the show. I remember climbing up the ski slope and back
down while waiting for The Band to get started.

Well, it sucks that they put on a poor show, but I guess I'm glad I
didn't really miss anything.
