The remaining tracks on disc 2 are from Tim Blake's set (which remains unreleased).

This set also circulates with Tim Blake's set, incorrectly labeled as Feb. 2 1977.
Geoff on the Gong Forum: "All the tapes in circulation came from ours (...) 45' into the set (...) there is a bit missing where the reel of tape was changed". There is a cut on "Jam" (track 3) which occurs around the 46th which confirms this.

Date and venue confirmed by Free Love Records website.
Show listed on Dave Weller website (incorrectly as Feb 2 1977).
Recollections on this show from the Gong Forum Here & Now. More on Early1977 Here & Now.
Keith "It was the first time H&N & Daevid played together and it was thusly a somewhat fraught experience for all concerned".
