  4. Inquisition
  5. Hardset Head *

* Denotes that this song was not included on the CD release.

"Hardset Head", which had never been performed live before, was to appear on the CD but was dropped at the eleventh hour due to copyright issues. It was available for download as an mp3 file on Nettwerk's website and later appeared on Back and Forth 6 in 2003.


The show was also recorded via DV video for a DVD release. Nettwerk, due to financial reasons, ultimately decided against the release.


Backing tapes were used for the rest of the music.
