Several tunes were broadcast:

  • First concert: "Jean Pierre/Then There Were None” (inc, 7:17) only.
  • Second concert: All titles except "One Phone Call - Street Scenes" and "Speak" were broadcast, some in an incomplete form: "Star People" (5:32); "Ms. Morrisine" (2:14); and "Code M.D" (5:40).

"One Phone Call - Street Scenes" and "Speak" from both concerts were issued as one title on Warner and Eagle Vision: "Theme from Jack Johnson; One Phone Call/Street Scenes; That's What Happened."

"Something on Your Mind" is listed as "MD 1 - Something's on Your Mind - MD 2" on Warner and Eagle Vision.

Some titles are incorrectly listed on JF 1001: "You're Under Arrest" (listed as ”Maze”); "Human Nature," "Katia," "Hopscotch," and "You're Under Arrest" (listed as "Medley: Mrs. Morrisine & You're Under Arrest"); and "Pacific Express" (listed as "Spring").
