The entire tracklisting as given on the sleeve itself is incorrect from track 6 onwards (correct version appears above). There is no song "Soulmate" as listed on the sleeve. Track 6 is actually "Last Night / Tomorrow (Part 1)", and the tracklisting on the sleeve is essentially correct from there on out, though with some slightly incorrect names:
"Girl You'll Be A Woman Soon" is given as "Girl...You'll Be A Woman Soon".
"Sister Havana" is given as "Haven".
"Dropout" is given as "Drop Out".
"The Candidate" is given as "Candidate".
"Crackbabies" is given as "Crack Babies".
Also, "Last Night / Tomorrow" is supposed to be one song, but is indexed as two separate tracks on this release.

This is a pretty fine bootleg release, with the exception of the errors in the song titles and spellings. It's a good crisp, clear stereo soundboard recording: the audience never overpowers the sound of the band at all and all instruments are clearly audible. There's a decent range of EQ: the mids are fine, the lows are low. Only the highs are slightly lacking in sharpness, but it can be overcome by EQing the system you use for playback. The band makes a few mistakes on the then-newer songs off "Exit The Dragon", especially with some of the lyrics, but it's forgivable, and barely noticeable. Most of the way through UO's set (possibly after taking a backstage break like they did at this point in the set on the "Saturation" tour) Blackie Onassis leaves the drum kit to come forward and sing lead on his "Saturation" LP song "Dropout". He sounds charmingly nervous as temporary frontman, and though the song sounds jarringly different in a new band-based arrangement (without The Butcher Brothers' looped drums, Blackie's acoustic guitar, and the spacey keyboards that were the hallmarks of the original), it comes off remarkably successfully. All in all, this is a fine document of the live UO sound in 1995, and since it's one of the only full live UO shows available, we're pretty lucky it's so far above being just adequate, unlike most live bootlegs of rock bands.
