Calyx website lists the same shows as shows by Gong rather than Gongmaison.

Side 2 track 2 is from Preston, Oct. 26th 1992, as from reference to Kali Festival in Daevid's spoken intro.
Side 2 track 3 is from Leicester, Oct. 31st, 1992, as from reference to Samhain in Daevid's spoken intro.

This tape (as its Volume 2 twin cassette) was never released on LP or cd, so it is still an essential addition for completists.
Didier Malherbe is featured with some of his best sax playing ever.
