The covers of Thank You (Led Zeppelin) and Death Valley '69 (Sonic Youth) are from a 1988 flexidisc by The Bob fanzine - they were recorded on a portable Nakamichi stereo cassette deck at the Milestone Club in Charlotte, NC, on 9/11/87 and were the final two encore songs of the evening performed immediately prior to the power blowing out at the venue. You can view the flexi here on Discogs:
