Unlisted on Columbia

There is a song, just an OK one, perhaps named "Vampire for your Love" which, at least on my download from Real.com, is "tacked onto" the album's alleged finale, S.L.U.T.  The track is listed as over 9 minutes long, at at about the 6 minute mark, long after SLUT is done, BS playes the above song.

What was the original setlist for this concert (if anyone knows), and is this song really a part of the concert (the background applause suggests so)?  What else is known about this song?

this is a scan of the setlist that appeared in the official Live At Columbia cd.
As you can see there were a couple of songs cut out on the released version from what the set list shows.
O My Soul-cut out
13-cut out

After Slut there doesn't appear to be anymore songs.
So who knows at this point?

So this other add-on was not one your official CD?  What is the the track length noted for SLUT on your CD?

That lyric is from Jeepster by T-Rex.  I haven't listened to Columbia is a while but BS was heavy into T-Rex covers so that's likely your song.

I have an audience tape of the Columbia show & they played a few cover songs at the end starting with Slut followed by:

Jeepster (the "vampire for your love" song)
Kansas City
Till The End Of The Day
& Duke Of Earl

On my video from Columbia they played Duke Of Earl.
Well, it wasn't a stellar performance of it per se but I liked how Alex sang it.
I need to watch that again....

read quoted post


I wonder, are those two songs, as recorded live, available anywhere (bootleg, perhaps)?  

I know Zoo, who put out the album, is out of business, but what happens to the artists' properties?

Also, for those who were there (there is a video  Personal or a DVD?), any other observations or comments as a whole, but especially on the songs not making the cut (was there a performance related issue as to why they may not have been used)?

the video is bad quality and the songs that are on the official release are probably their strongest performances.

They did "Duke Of Earl" and it looked uncomfortable and came off that way (IMO) but I liked how Alex sang it.

Maybe they couldn't get the rights to release the other songs they did, who knows.. but after watching the video, the official release is fine.
