Session Details: 

Discography says the bass and drums are unknown. Based on other gigs he played around this time, I would imagine it was Bob Neel on drums? It's strange because I would think there would be video copy of this airing where Steve Allen (Tonight Show's host at the time) would introduce the band? -JS
