The "Give Me Strength"s are also known as "Dobro Jam 1 and 2" in Marc Roberty
books. The mixing of the first seven tracks, all of which appeared on "Crossroads", is reportedly different from the legitimate release. This could be due to the "Crossroads" versions having been remixed from *these* remixed versions. (J.M.)
