You don't have the CD? Or you don't have the booklet? ;)

Well, it's the regular touring group of 1972. Why do you ask?

...with the exception of the NY shows where the orchestra used was not "Joe Guercio's orchestra" but another one... maybe someone can spell the name properly... as I can't remember how to spell it.

Susan -
The band consisted of: James Burton - lead guitar; John Wilkenson - rhythm guitar; Ronny Tutt - drums; Jerry Scheff - bass; Glen D. Harding - piano; Charlie Hodge - harmony vocals & acoustic rhythm guitar. This was the "classic" TCB band line-up.
The backing vocalists: J.D.Sumner & the Stamps Quartet (Bill Baize, Ed Enoch, Richard Sterban, Donny Sumner); the Sweet Inspirations (Estelle Brown, Sylvia Shemwell, Myrna Smith); Kathy Westmoreland.
The orchestra was conducted by Joe Guercio.

If I'm not mistaken, the orchestra conducted by Joe Guercio for those shows at MSG was the "Joe Malin Orchestra", a local orchestra that had been hired for the engagement rather than flying Guercio's orchestra from Las Vegas to NYC.

Thanx
