Around 1982, an eight song soundboard fragment from the second night in Frankfurt saw its debut on vinyl on More Than Welcome To Frankfurt. The most complete soundboard source, with 10 complete tracks and a 23 second fragment of another, was issued ca. two years later on the album Absolutely Too Stoned To Roll.
