Just a guess, Jim, but I would think that *all* of the mid- to late-70s
recorded by Kazdin at the Eaton Auditorium would be on the repaired/reworked
CD318.  This may include everything from the Hindemith brass sonatas all the
way up to second Goldbergs.  If you come up with definitive dates and the
like, I'd be interested.  I think the infamous CD318 accident happened
in 1970 or 1971, didn't it?
