Details:

This is the first known setlist of a Max Webster show, long before the first album was released. The material is almost entirely originals, many of which would end up on later albums.

According to Paul Kersey, Lily was nearly a half hour long when it was first written, no doubt inspired by progressive rock bands like Jethro Tull and Yes. Bit by bit many of the sections would be cut, eventually resulting in the seven and a half minute version heard on the album and at shows during this period.
