The King Snake, Bootleg

Talk about a fountain of misinformation this bootleg is noted as 
being “recorded live in the USA 1969 - 1970” this really should read 1971, 1973 - 1978.
Taken from 2 live shows and a quadraphonic recording.

Ballad of Dwight Fry” isn’t even listed as it follows track 3 “Second Coming”. 

1. Is It My Body  (live 1971)
2. Caught In A Dream (live 1971)
3. Second Coming (live 1971)
4.Ballad of Dwight Fry (not listed) (live 1978 Civic Center in Saginaw, MI)
5. I’m Eighteen (live 1978 Civic Center in Saginaw, MI)
6. Raped And Freezin’ (1973, “Billion Dollar Babies” quadraphonic recordings)
7. I Love The Dead (1973, “Billion Dollar Babies” quadraphonic recordings)
