Taper's notes:

If you are a fan of "East Bay Grease" & "Bump City" TOP, you will love this. Loose,live & blusey versions in good sound. Serious Stax style R&B on T8, too.

RE: 71' TOP. There is material circulating from "the closing of the Fillmore"(7/4/71) but I don't think this comes from that as my source is pretty reliable. If anybody can compare, please do.

After "Back on the Streets again", Whoever is on the mic mentions that they are recording for a record this night? Aborted live album?

I stole my big brother's "East Bay Grease" LP when I was about 10 years old because of the crazy cover. I played it to death w/ Stones Let it Bleed & Jimi's Axis. East bay Grease was out of print for maybe 15 years & then Rhino came through....
