Notes:

Track 18 is one of the most interesting on the Box Set: This track is noted as being a "Soundcheck" recording from August 1977. However, both it and the original mixed version for the abandoned "Rock And Roll Party In Tokyo" album feature an identical guitar flub right after Paul shouts "is" during the intro to the song. That same "flub," which sounds like a miscue on a guitar or feedback effect, is present low in the mix of the "Alive II" song. The "Rock And Roll Party In Tokyo" and "sound check" versions also have the same Ace guitar solo screw-up during the second solo. This solo is cut from the "Alive II" version along with Paul's audience interaction rap. What does any of this indicate? It would seem highly plausible that "I Want You" on "Alive II" is from the Japanese show recorded earlier in 1977 and mixed with the same audience as the rest of "Alive II." Furthermore, it would seem quite logical, from that point of view, that the "sound check" version on the "Box Set" is simply the recording without the audience over-dubs.
