Pittylabelle, Zappateers, April 26, 2017

Our current findings around the different officially released Rollo versions from 1972 Kansas City & Elsewhere:

RSD 2017: entire track is from 1972 12 02 (Early) Kansas City.

Little Dots: 0:00-3:04 portion is from 1972 12 02 (Early) Kansas City. Anything from 3:04 onwards (long sustained chord with bass solo, leading into Tony Duran solo) is from neither of the Kansas City shows, therefore to be labeled "from unknown venue and date".

As far as we can tell, no portion from the 1972 12 02 (Late) Kansas City show has been included in the RSD or in the Little Dots release.
