  • Recorded live February 13 and St. Valentine's Day, 1970 at Bill Graham's Fillmore East by Owsley Stanley ("Bear"). Bear says: "There were 14 mics used in all. Except for the vocals, each is in only one of the channels. I don't use any tone controls or equalization. The deck I used in those days was a Sony 770-2 running at 7.5 ips NAB, the tape was Scotch 203 on seven-inch reels."
