  The backing vocalists were Dusty Springfield, Danny Hutton, Gerry Beckley, Cat
  Stevens, Bruce & Brian. This session was unproductive: the bvs on the released
  version are by Daryl Dragon, Toni Tennille, Billy Hinsche, Bruce & Carl, recorded
  before the end of February . The date for this session is accurate to within a day or
  two: Bruce stated in an interview that Elton flew to Japan the next day, and the first
  date of that tour was February 1st.
2
  Part of this basic track evolved into a section of "10,000 Years", which in turn
  mutated into "Friday Night".
3
  Widely misspelled as "Spring Bass Song", this was an early take at "Rainbows".
4
  Mike made a guest appearence and sang California Girls, backed by Charles Lloyd
  & John McLaughlin - reportedly, he was booed by the political crowd who were
  there to see Bob Dylan and others, but an audience recording reveals the exact
  reverse was the case and that he was enthusiastically recieved.
5
  Roger McGuinn joined the band fro three songs, including his own "Draggin'".
6
  Elton John & Paul Simon joined the band for the encore. This show was broadcast
  live on FM radio. 
7
  Ricky Fataar's last show with the band. He's not mentioned in any of the November
  or December live reviews.
8
  Featuring Roy Wood, Nick Pentelow & Mike Burney of Wizzard on drums and
  saxes respectively.
9
  Nothing whatsoever to do with the Smile song: this is a Dennis composition also
  known as "Barnyard Blues".
10
  This was Dennis' documented return to drumming: however, it's possible he
  drummed on the October dates as well.
11
  Although advertised as being support for this show, Raspberries bass player Scott
  McCarl states they were playing in Wise VA on their own.
12
  Aired December 31st (of course...): the band performed "Good Vibrations" &
  "Surfer Girl" alone, "Darlin'" with the Chicago horn section and Alan, Carl & Mike
  provided (lip-synced) bvs for Chicago's "Wishing You Were Here". Dennis was
  not present. The seeds of the Beachago tour were sown...
