Notes
(1) "Oh Babe, It Ain't No Lie" was on the LP but was omitted from the original CD (though it is now on the re-issued version)
(2) thanks to Todd Corey for identifying these dates
(3) thanks to Dan Franzen for identifying this date
(4) thanks to Charles Frederick for identifying this date
(5) thanks to Aaron Donovan for the following notes:
"On the Road Again" also appears on the "Dead Ahead" video, the liner notes of which say was recorded only at Radio City Music Hall. All band members are wearing exactly the same thing for all four acoustic songs in "Dead Ahead," making it very likely that all four of those songs are from the same night. Only two Radio City shows, 10/22/80 and 10/27/80, contained all four of these songs, "Bird Song," "On the Road Again," "Ripple," and "To Lay Me Down," so "On the Road Again" is almost certainly from one of those two nights.

A careful review of "Dead Ahead" also revealed that "Bird Song," "Ripple" and "To Lay Me Down" from "Reckoning" are not the same versions that appear on the video.
