Notes & details:

- Fohat: starts with Keith saying it's getting "strong & streaming"; with band intro verse and "me father" coda.
- World Peace: "Negotiate" / "We Circle Around". Fades in on Graham Clark solo before "Blame The Rich" section.
- Can't Kill Me: ends without the usual "Ya Sonne" "Camembert Electric" coda.
- Mr Longshanks / Oh Mother: played seamlessly but listed separately.
- Dynamite: this Gongmaison version didn't include Gilli's "I Am Your Animal". Ends with a long "Ya Sonne" coda.
- WX7 Magic: Didier with WX7; this piece, here performed with Shyamal, was a sort of modern "Flute Salad".
- Lady Dear Lady: "Only Make Love If You Want It" as released on french Tapioca version of "Happiest Time...".
- Zero Theme: "Only Make Love" coda not on "Happiest Time", also part of Here & Now's repertore as "Changes".
- Reality Pot: Daevid sings "Figaro" before "Flying Teapot" as "Flying Teacup" ("Gongmaison" LP arrangement).
- You Are I And I Are You: "Mantram Chant Of You" ("You Never Blow Yr Trip Forever" coda on "You"). Fades in.
