Notes

Live at the Los Angeles Music Center Dorothy Chandler Pavilion February 1, 1971.

Many of the songs played at this show were unreleased at the time, hence the messed up titles.

There are two LP jacket versions for this release, one with graphics/photos and another that was plain white with the Rubber Dubber logo and LP title stamped on. The version with the photos is the ORIGINAL release!

I spoke to one of the guys responsible for this recording and here is what he had to say about my copy:

"That is a legit copy and was the original cover. I believe it was the first one without a plain white cover. I can't remember how many were printed, but the manufacturing was not done in a semi-truck at first; it was done by "The Record Plant" in Grand Prairie, Texas. The jackets were done in a separate facility. When The Record Plant was busted by Rubber Dubber for selling unauthorized copies (go figure-they were all unauthorized), the LPs were produced by another facility in L.A., and I never bothered to find out where as I did not want to know too much information."

"I helped record that album, and if my memory serves me well (sometimes it doesn't at my age) we put out [that] cover first. The white covers, which were standard operating procedure for all the albums, came first for almost all the albums. We tried to spruce it up with this one and it was the first to use photos. When that got expensive, we switched back to the whites which already had gained in popularity. I lost my whole collection somewhere along the trail over the subsequent years. I was only involved in the operation for about three years, and then I left in 1972 for other pursuits...I handled the shotgun mic for that show as well as the Leon Russell/Elton John show with the two of them on back to back grand pianos. I smuggled the microphone in down my right pant leg, walking in like Chester from the Gunsmoke TV show for both shows. Those were the only shows I was involved in the actual recording process even though I was heavily involved in other aspects such as marketing."

Oddly, you'll notice the title differs between the cover, "I'm Happy That Y'all Came Down," and the labels, "I'm Glad Y'all Came Down."
