Just a basic question or two re the 1987 concert.....  I have SOS 1155,
"Turk at Carnegie,"  mentioned above, described as "the Carnegie
concert."  But "Southern Stomps" is also referred to as not having "the
entire concert."

Besides the fact that some folk confuse the video (taped in a hotel, NOT
in Carnegie concert, right?) with the actual Carnegie concert, which of
all the albums mentioned is best representative of "the concert," per
se?  I know that "Turk at Carnegie" is definitely concert material, but
what about "Southern Stomps"?  Is it concert or "hotel" material, or
both, or neither?,
