Not actually filmed at the Stone Pony (it didn`t open until a few years later), but that is how it is always described. The correct venue appears to be Mt.

The show is incomplete because apparently the band forgot to collect the second real of film at the end of the show!
Last track, 'Black Juju', often cuts into the version from Medicine Ball Caravan.
