Empress Valley's Wild West Side Complete! is another label with a newly discovered second audience source for the Vancouver show on August 19, 1971. This four disc set features two versions of a source mix between the old and new recordings. The first two discs are primarily new source, while the next two discs are focusing on the old tape as the basis. Again, a big warning must be taken as it was reported that a new and better sounding version of the newly released source is coming soon.

Live From Vancouver '71: Alternate Recording is the newest title from Graf Zeppelin, representing a newly discovered audience recording for the August 19, 1971 show. This double-disc set features also few bonus tracks taken from other source, released lately by Empress Valley in its entirety. However, please be careful, the person responsible for this new source reported that there's a better sounding version of his tape, and soon it will be transferred and shared as an upgrade. Same with Wendy Records, who puts its own version of this tape, a double-disc set titled Plenty Of Action, which is a source mix of both audience recordings actually.

The continuous saga
of the recently surfaced Jon Wizardo recording of the excellent Los
Angeles show on June 23, 1977 is still on. The Lighthouse decided to
release another set, titled For Badge Holders Only: Jon Wizardo Master
Cassettes: Complete Edition, this time filing the missing gaps with
alternate sources to make this show virtually complete. Graf Zeppelin
isn't worse, as it just issued their own version of this tape, For Badge
Holders Only: Original Wizardo Master Recording, making its own source mix. Both sets are stickered and strictly limited. Who'll be the next?
