"One Phone Call/Street Scenes" and "Speak" were not broadcast, and "Hopscotch" and "You're Under Arrest" were only broadcast in incomplete form. Davis did not play with the Gil Evans orchestra at the concert, despite several sources that say that he did.

A two-track tape of this concert exists in the Columbia vaults.

The Davis group traveled to Europe for a couple dates in early November:

November 6: Palais Omnisport de Bercy, Paris, France
November 8: Palau del Esports, Barcelona, Spain

The band returned to New York but Davis stayed in Europe for a vacation.
