Based on recollections from Ed Lyons.......
They began by singing Hungry Freaks Daddy and I Ain't Got No Heart, then a version of My Boyfriend's Back. I then recall a bunch of improv music and antics, but don't recall what other songs were played until the very long instrumental medley they finished with, very much like the one on Ahead of Their Time (from King Kong on), as I do recall some familiar tunes and guitar solos. Since they had only three albums at the time, I had little frame of reference for identifying what came between the first songs and medley.
Thank you Ed!
