This music is from the second concert performed on this date. Once again, "Ife" is announced as "Call It Anything." Because of problems with the PA system, Miller plays the bass line on ts at the end of "Fat Time" and on the first version of "Jean Pierre."

A two-track tape exists in the Columbia vaults.
