In Audacity, I put the tracks in order and edited crowd noise in between tracks so the flow from one song to the next would be better.

* This is an improvised jam that's pretty well-known amongst the Modest Mouse community (at least for those of us who collect bootlegs). I decided to throw it in since I think it fits nicely and a few songs from this album are missing.
NOTE: The songs "Heart Cooks Brain," "Lounge (Closing Time)," and "Long Distance Drunk" from LCW are not included because I have no recordings of them. At least one recording of "Heart Cooks Brain" is known to exist, but is hard to come across. Let me know if you've got it!

Thanks a lot to all the individual tapers whose recordings I've used for this, and I hope you enjoy it.
