ledwhofloyd's comment at Dime:

"On the third track, Pat Metheny says that a new album is just a few days away from being released. American Garage was released on November 1, 1979. Based on the Pat Metheny database (PMDB|The Pat Metheny DataBase) this show is probably either 1979-10-30 or 1979-10-31. It is probably 1979-10-31 because he mentions that they "GOT" to play 2 nights here - past tense.

East Lansing, Michigan, United States
MSU Michigan State University, McDonel Hall Kiva"

Goody's notes:
The speed/pitch of the source ran quite fast, averaging approximately 48 cents sharp, and has been brought back in tune.
Tracking has been updated - 'The Windup', the final part of a medley which began with 'Unity Village', has been relocated to the end of track 5.
Some people like splitting these. In this case I prefer them joined together as played, (although given the right occasion I might choose to split something like this up.)
Many small glitches and dropouts have been repaired individually and manually.
Many thanks to all involved in the creation, capture and sharing of this great show!
