      • That’s a good question. I haven’t listened to either yet, just saw the same track listing and said hold on something’s wrong here lol. I only listened to 15 seconds of each. If you can hear the dog and plane as described on the porch tape then I guess that would have to be where it’s from. I am leaning that way at least initially because the sound on both are pretty rough for a tv recording unless someone held a tape recorder to a tv set which is definitely a possibility. Have you seen the porch tape listed on Sugar Mtn? I didn’t but that’s only for shows, I don’t think there’s a separate section for rehearsals, studio sessions and odds and ends which is where the porch tape would be I guess. I’m gonna try to contact them and see if they know anything about it.

        • I talked to some friends about it and we all seem to agree that it probably is back porch recording. The dog and the plane do seem to indicate it isn’t a studio recording and one would think that after all these years some video would have surfaced by now. If I remember I’m gonna combine the two shows into one post tomorrow. I’ll leave the notes about the TV taping because I can’t 100% say it isn’t that, but I agree with you . This seems most likely to be a porch recording. Although your idea that someone held a microphone up to the TV is an interesting possibility.

          Let me know if anyone from Sugar MTN has any thoughts.

          • I’ll definitely let you know if I hear back from them. I am surprised as well that no video has ever surfaced of the tv taping. I have been looking for it for decades, the audio even more so but have never seen it until i saw your post which made me break out into my happy dance lol. Have you ever found the complete BBC show from 2-23-71? That’s another one I can’t believe has never surfaced or at least that I have never seen. You’d figure if it was recorded why do only the same 7 or so songs circulate. If by miracles of miracles you have that or know anyone who does I would greatly appreciate you posting it.
