The well known August 16th 1974 recording was done in Hollywood I think.

Joe is correct, it was taped in-line on a C-90 cassette at RCA Hollywood, on 6363 Sunset Boulevard. Ed Bonja either made the recording or it was given to him after the rehearsal. The Jan '70 and Jan '72 rehearsals are off-line, and somewhat of a mystery.

Yes that's right, I had forgotten about that. Back in the day, we thought it was in the showroom in the afternoon...
