Any bootlegs of the Toronto show in 1965?

So I was reading about the 1965 tour. Apparently John's elbow-playing wrecked that Vox organ at Shea Stadium and they had to trade it in Atlanta for a new one (It was just recently repaired and sold for a great deal of money). Indeed, if one listens to the Atlanta performance of I'm Down, the organ is clearly messed up. However, listening to the Shea Stadium performance, the organ sounds fine when they finish, leading me to believe that it was the Toronto show in between where John destroyed it.

Are there any recordings of this show, or at least the I'm Down performance?

 

John's probably the only musician I could forgive for trashing a "Connie", especially considering the circumstances in which it met its end.

No recording of the Toronto '65 show has surfaced but a few minutes of silent footage is out there from one of the shows. I havent seen it so no idea whats documented.

According to John C. Winn's book Way Beyond Compare: The Beatles Recorded Legacy, my initial assertion was correct, and it was in fact during the subsequent performance of "I'm Down" in Toronto that John destroyed the Continental. An insignificant bit of trivia, but I suppose it could be interesting to Beatle instrument (or organ) enthusiasts.

(Part 3/3 of the Atlanta Concert, 1965)

If anyone's curious to hear what a keyboard sounds like in its death-throes, the "I'm Down" performance starts around 9:06. It's a pity too, George is on fire for that solo (Evidently, this was the only concert where the Beatles actually had monitors onstage that let them hear their playing).
