One version has a song added from another ’74 concert, which is not included on the track list on the slip sheet. This was discovered by accident, when I transfered my copy to digital. After posting it on a torrent site I was contacted by another member, stating their vinyl copy didn’t have that track.

A. The first pressings with a two-tone red & blue or all blue slip sheet. These have all the songs as listed on the slipsheet.

These are usually found with white WORLDS Records or yellow “Side …” labels. If you know the matrix numbers from your pressing with these inserts, please leave a comment. Also, kindly check if the song “Something” (in upgraded sound quality compared to the Vancouver tracks) is present or not.

B. The tan insert version found usually with black Worlds Records labels. I believe this is a later reissue.

These have “Something” added from the Long Beach recording released as Let’s Hear One For Lord Budda (sic) on Phonygraf .

The matrix numbers are: SODD 2-005-A /B / C / D

This is the first time, I have seen one. I had asked the owner for more photos but they were all in much poorer quality than this one. The thing that strikes me is that this is the same font as used on their labels.

It must date from 1973 due to the Neil Young listings. It lists the new releases in a non-chronological fashion, the earliest I can see is # 3585 (Beatles – Mary Jane and Dylan’s Help., # 3586. It shows releases all the way until # 3649 (Simon & Garfunkel), so this probably covers several months wort of releases from late 1972 up to well into the spring of 1973.
The title of the Floyd album shows a working title that would later get changed to Floyds Of London. The same seems to apply for the last partially visible title, which to my best guess was at this stage a future Rolling Stones release (Rehearsal Sessions ’72 Tour, # 3690 ?). Plenty of titles, that based on their release number should also have been released around this time aren’t mentioned.

Above: In an August 3rd 1976 article, Mike Millard is interviewed about the cancellation of the scheduled Yes concert at the Bakersfield, CA Civic Auditorium after it was only discovered at the last minute that the equipment wouldn’t all fit onstage and couldn’t be hung from the auditorium’s ceiling. The ticket date on their Solo Albums tour was August 2nd, sandwhiched between a Las Vegas and a Fresno date. Now you know why there’s no Millard recording for Yes in ’76.

The recorder model used by Mike Millard from 1975 onwards. Not much used to be known about Mike and the same information was usually copied across the web sites that mention him. The following blog post was written by someone who actually knew him:

Steely Dan BOB

Matrix: SD 7000-A / B

California, ca. 1977

I believe originals have Slipped Disk labels. It was later reissued with Unmitigated Audacity and Modern Jazz Records labels.

[The final two songs on the B-side, “Do It Again” and “Reeling In The Years” are live recordings.]

A customer brought this tape into the record store where I worked back in 1976 (the Slipped Disc [in the Panorama City district of Los Angeles]). Copied this with my Teac 4070G 1/4 track R2R @ 7 1/2 ips using a new TDK Audua L-1800 tape. I think our friend had a Teac deck also.

The one technical flaw is that this seems to have been recorded over previously recorded tape that had not been properly degaussed. Something can be heard in the background at the beginning and end of the last 2 songs. It is way down in the noise floor but can be heard in the headphones.


By the way, the bootleg LP version is also from this tape. Here is the story behind that one.
Used to have a “live tape day” on Thursdays at the Slipped Disc.
A record store where I worked from 1976 to 1987. Anyone was welcomed to bring a deck and patch in. It was a big party with beers and whatnot every week.
A certain person I knew showed up the day I shared these outtakes and got a copy.
He made a copy for a friend who then sold a copy to the bootlegger ‘cause I wouldn’t.
All those copies were done on cheaper cassette decks but it still sounded nice.
Released as “Bent Over Backwards” by a friend of ours (Vicky Vinyl) and would you believe they used our Record Store name for the label! Damn!

Slipped Disc lbl
Yes, our record store did get busted but we had nothing to do with manufacturing these things. I was adamant and wouldn’t sell these recordings to the bootleggers who I actually knew pretty well. Didn’t matter after our store name became an underground “label”. We got off with a minor scare but the FBI is nobody you want to deal with. Bummer was we couldn’t stock bootlegs anymore after that.

I scanned the LP and cover for that “Bent Over Backwards” LP which of course I got right away. Got copies of every bootleg we would carry as I was the one designated to screen them and order the good ones.
Story over.

Dedicated to Kevin Webber, my best friend and somewhat of a boss for over ten years at the Slipped Disc Records in Panorama City.
It was one of Kevin’s friends that brought me this tape.

Manufactured in the Los Angeles area: 1977. Apparently, the planned part 2 never happened.

Likely only 100 copies pressed. Matrix: 75281 (‘wrmb’ scratched)

Source: Patti mentions seeing the Stones at Earls Court in London a couple of months ago (when she was in London as well to perform at the Roundhouse and appear on the BBC’s Old Grey Whistle Test). death records tended to record concerts in the Seattle or L.A. area only, so my best guess is that this comes from her Roxy, L.A. concert from November of 1976.

Quality comment: “The sound quality is good to excellent (but Patti sounds completely worn out).”

Side A: “Free Money”, “Pale Blue Eyes/Louie Louie”, “Ask The Angels”, “Time Is On My Side”
Side B: “Pumping (My Heart)”, “Ain’t It Strange”, “Gloria”
