Two gigs a day were played, three days in a row. Michael Bloomfield was hospitalized for insomnia the last night, and Elvin Bishop, Santana, Steve Miller and Dave Brown volunteered their services. The last two are not present on the album, which is a great live album.

Track (16) is a bonus track from the remastered 2003 version of Super Session. The track probably comes from these dates.
