While listening to my friend's copy of Live USA I noticed something weird. 30 seconds into HAC, I heard what sounded to me like an extra guitar solo laid on top of the usual track. This guitar solo (which sounds totally different from that of Dave) lasts 45 sec, and then dissapears for the remainder of the show. Now, I own a copy of Caught in the Crossfire, which is from the same show (NY, July 2, 77), so I never bothered to listen to Live USA. So this was kind of a shock/surprise to me. What I did then was i put both of the albums into separate cd players and started the songs simulteneously. Indeed, Caught in the Crossfire is missing that guitar (but the "background" music is exactly identical). Also, the vocals on Live USA start 40 seconds later! Now I am totaly positive, that these songs come from the same show. My guess is maybe the roio maker added this solo in while inserting and extra chunk of the "background" music. Because really I have not heard dave play that solo on any other show. -ANON
