I have well over a thousand Nektar gigs listed in my 1969-2012 chronology, and I have noticed that sometimes the dates on USA bootlegged CDs differ.. especially when written by an American. DAY/MONTH/YEAR is the standard except here in the USA.. where they insist on Month/Day/Year.
I merely list my recorded shows by Year/Month/Day to maintain the archive in numerical order.
   Anyhoo... only ONE LGG show.. 15th May 1971. (1971-05-15) I have an original copy, verified by my diary entry on that same date... with an abbreviated setlist... here's how my diary setlist reads:-
Drop, I am, 1-4, DyBiM. Then Opera & Help Me to finish.
We played ONE long set, the police were called to stop more people trying to enter the small Ludwig George Gymnasium in Darmstadt, where the capacity was only 1300.. and already FULL.
"Lonely Roads" wasn't listed, but neither were the other jams or other (later) titles on that night.
"Drop" became "Tab", "I am" became "We are the Ocean" and "Help Me" =  "New Day Dawning".
It looks like you have the correct playing order, and some very early versions of Nektar songs.
BTW, This gig also pre-dates our JttCotE recording sessions... which weren't until JUNE 1971.
On my two disc set, the Opera/NDD is disc one, which could also be confusing.
Don't even get me started on why America refused to embrace the worldwide systems of metric measurement, especially when it always seemed to work very well for money here.
BTW, it is 21 degrees here and snowing, while gasoline remains at over $3 a gallon!

Oops sorry, missed that... It's setlist.fm, "the setlist wiki".

AFAIK you can't ZZ, as all early recordings are now archived totally offline (for obvious reasons, especially theze daze). 
Sometime down the road, a climate surrounding "official release" of all decent live recordings may become possible, however not under the present circumstances.
Some concerts (which were copied ONCE in the 1980s) have already been abused/used or copied without accountability to (or permission from) the original Nektar owners... such is the digital world.
It's unnecessarily complicated, as I'd LOVE to send you a copy.... but that wouldn't be fair to others.   It's also the reason that there were no further "Light Show Tape" CDs like "Door to the Future", as many previously unreleased tracks could have been included in every Nektar LST compilation. 
One of my ideas was to do a "Tab related" LST release which would have included early live versions of Tab,  We are the Ocean, Desolation Valley, Waves etc. with earlier arrangments and alternate or no vocals, however Cleopatra has just added this idea to their latest re-re-re-release of Tab, which has BOTH Tab album mixes PLUS those same tracks live from 1971.... but instead of "We are the Ocean", Roye added a fourth rendition of Desolation Valley.... from 1973. 
The new Cleo release of Tab is still a very good deal for fans tho', see...
