Details:

Terry Watkinson has returned to the band, although his role is greatly reduced as he's off in the corner more like a sideman, and none of his songs are in the setlist. Kim later recalled how he wanted to have Terry on the upcoming New Year's Eve gig at Maple Leaf Gardens. He would play every remaining show with the band.

Most of Universal Juveniles is performed tonight, while there are only four songs from the first two albums combined. One of them is In Context Of The Moon, which is performed with some new and interesting embellishments, but also with a minute cut from the song.

Old Gomer is a non-album solo piece by Kim (and is sometimes referred to as "What Do You Do When You're An Old Man"). It would be performed into 1981 (and also at some of his early solo shows).
