Differences from last show

(Note: Differences taken from last date with available info)

Blues jam dropped from set

General info:

The first show of Steely Dan's UK tour. This would also be their first ever show performed outside of America. An especially rowdy crowd attended and would chant for "Razor Boy" to be played as an encore. To this day, that track has never been played outside of America.
