The Davis Septet opened for Leon Russell and Sea Train for four nights at the Fillmore West, October 15-18 (Thursday-Sunday). Columbia probably recorded these shows, and the Fillmore certainly did.

An audience recording of part of this concert was broadcast by KPFA-FM sometime in the spring of 1971. Perhaps as a result, this music has circulated for years listed as Berkeley, Spring 1971. But the correct venue and date is listed above.
