  • Available on the "Schizophrenia" bootleg. The tracks "JC" and "Expressway" on the Schizophrenia bootleg are actually taken from 10/24/92 for reasons unknown (since it's possibly the worst version of JC ever performed). I'm not positive that "White Kross" is the final song of the Milan gig, but it seems to be.
