This 1971 LP was produced from a run that mistakenly used two mismatched
master plates. It is not known for sure what Label created the '6 &
2' format (Six songs on side A; two on B) Since the matrix is 'LIVE
A/B', it is thought that the LP is the basis for the 'Live Label'
LP spoken of by Heylin and Hot Wacks.
This release is another piece of the puzzle, as it is actually titled
'Bob Dylan and the Band Live'
On the back of of the cover is the track listings that are in the standard
'4 & 4' format. It will be assumed then, that the intention of the
manufacturer was to release a version of that LP using pre-exsisting master
The LP has the standard label. However, a mistake in loading the master
plates resulted in A side being pressed from the 'AHLP3'
plate, and B side being pressed from the 'LIVE ' plate.
The result is this oddity that is in a unique '4 & 4' format cover
and contains only six songs.
