I had a big clock with a red digital read-out on the floor in front of me, and had the start time One Slip - Pink Floyd - A Momentary Lapse Of Reason each number on a piece of paper. If we were coming near the start time of the next number, I just had to wrap 1921 - The Who - Live At Hull 1970 the one we were on.
