- this is a degraded soundboard recording, not an audience recording
- Plosin's site also says that an audience tape of this concert was broadcast on KPFA in the spring of 1971
- there is some clipping
- the instruments are well separated into left or right for the most part
- there is no sense of a common mic location - each instrument appears balanced in the recording
- unlike the prior night, the hiss is more prominant and the audio signal rolls off around 8 khz
- 01: fades in. Plosin's site references a Bill Graham intro of ~ 0:04 which is not on this recording
- 02: 8:36 thru 9:09 many little pops and crackle
- 03 is a nice version of "What I Say" which highlights the ensemble support of the various lead instruments
- 05: abruptly cuts off
- Opened for Leon Russell.
- there is another version of this source and at some point both had a common ancestor. That source had additional padding at the start of track 1 and small gaps betwen tracks indicating a poor extraction, most likely.
