Notes

Once a matrix number had been issued to a song, the same matrix number was used for all takes or different rehearsals of the same song, regardless of whether it was recorded on March 30 or 31.

The Gospel section at the end of the rehearsal, is presented in binaural, as it was originally recorded, on the Madison bootleg Rock My Soul, although 'I Should Have Been Crucified' (listed as 'Must Jesus Bear The Cross Alone') is presented out of sequence.
