Taper's Notes:
"I've had it in a safety deposit box for several years. I was a stage manager at the Warehouse during most of the shows at that classic venue, including the Doors'. The tape is in two-channel stereo -- it was recorded by 'Stagehand Bob' on the same machine he used for just about every early show at the Warehouse."
