The greatest.

The tracks are mistakenly listed for Disc 5 - Live in California.
The correct order (as they are on this CD):
5-4 Splash 1 3:42
5-5 I'm Gonna Love You Too 2:11
5-6 You Really Got Me 6:37

The way they are listed follows the original order in the bootleg "Live S.F. '66". It's hard to know which is the correct order as the tracks have been edited and there is no live transition between them. But which ever the correct order, the time for each song is as I've listed it.
