referencing Long Beach 1976, 2xCD, Album, RM, 0210940EMU
this is a copy of the "Connoiseur Records" double CD release from 1995 "Live in California-Long Beach Arena 1976" (which was from an "infamous" bootleg "On the Wings of a russian foxbat"), and was a LEGIT release that is not listed here in Discogs. This one had some great liner notes!...don't know about this "Ear Music" release...
EDIT. it is listed as a Compilation , but not on the main releases page,,

Tracks taken from the Foxbat / King Biscuit live re-ordered, thus giving an unpleasant listening experience. Highway Star twice, but why?
Avoid this!
