 Notes: Credits for this (surprisingly clear, 46 year-old) live recording belong to

1) Anthony Knight, of Kensington, California, 

2) Kyle Harris, late of Phoenix, Arizona and 

3) Ellie Hartz, of Phoenix, widow of Arizona Republic Author James Cook.

It was Ellie who brought Anthony's recordings (there are about forty more from October of 1969) to veteran recording engineer Kyle Harris who 'remastered' them.
