The Davis Septet opened for Leon Russell and Sea Train for four nights at the Fillmore Auditorium, October 15-18 (Thursday-Sunday). Columbia probably recorded these shows, and the Fillmore certainly did. The beginning of "Directions" is missing from this recording, and there is a brief gap in "Yesternow" (due perhaps to a tape flip, since the gap is about 43 minutes from the beginning of the recording).
