Poor amateur mono recording with plenty of hiss and background noise. It's evident that the tape the Makenzies used had previously been recorded as traces of the previous recording can still be heard. Quite a few clipped sets. Definitely not for the timid. Had Clinton Heylin not neglected this "session" he would certainly have reserved "acts of sacrilege in song" for this one rather than waste such prose on the 05/01/70 session with George Harrison.
Dubbed from tape 06/09/96. 60 min.
