The spoken introduction and the song itself are from Long Beach. A 19-second portion of the opening instrumental passage has been cut at 0:18, which is understandable as it was a bit on the long and rambling side. Right near the end, at 5:13, there's another cut where just two bars, about 3 seconds, have been removed. The reason for this minuscule cut is not so obvious, although on the distant and muffled bootleg recording there is some evidence of a noise that perhaps also disturbed the official recording and necessitated the minor surgery.
