Non-originals Pandora's Box was a non-album track at that time. Thanks to Alan Semok, who sent in this set list from the second of two shows promoted by Ron Delsener at the Felt Forum; does anyone have a set-list from the earlier show?
Regarding the earlier show, Marvin Chassman comments: 'I'm pretty certain that Procol played  two nights at the Felt  Forum, and that I saw them on the first  night [20 April 1973], which was a Friday. However, while looking for documentary evidence, I came upon this listing for a CD by Deodato/Airto which, it is claimed, was recorded on 20 April 1973 at the Felt Forum.

'I know that the Felt Forum is part of yet separate from Madison Square Garden but I don't know if there are multiple Felt Fora; I kind of doubt it. So unless there are multiple fora, or there was a matinée (the listing says evening) then either that CD description is incorrect or my memory is off.'

Alan Semok responds: 'Despite the natural fog that 38 years can superimpose on one's memory synapses,  my memory of that day is rather vivid (though I am still working on remembering where I may have stored the negatives of the photos I took on the night).

'In any case, I am fairly certain that there was indeed an earlier show on the Saturday in question, which may have been added sometime after the evening show was initially announced.     I had a few friends who attended both shows (I haven't been able to track down a setlist from the earlier show but despite the fact that much of the set consisted of Grand Hotel tracks, I do remember one of my friends saying that there were a few notable variations in the setlist...the  specifics are lost in the aforementioned haze, but I distinctly remember her telling me that Homburg was played at the earlier show).

'I hope this info helps ...  and I am reminded again what a great concert it was ...'

Very similar list to another show on the same tour! Review of this show here
