Notes

'Sessions III' lists the date as being October 28 when additional Strings were overdubbed to It Ain't No Big Thing (But It's Growing), Make The World Go Away and Funny How Time Slips Away but this is the date of the listing of the Session Log. At the bottom right hand corner of the Session Log there is a hand written date "10/27/70" indicating a date of October 27 1970 for this overdub session.

'Sessions III' lists the date as being October 28 when Brass & Strings were overdubbed to Snowbird but there is no indication in the Session Log of Snowbird being overdubbed on this date. Confusingly though there is however, a log listing musicians for the unused Horn overdubs for Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On, that also shows Snowbird as having Strings overdubbed by this date too. At the bottom right hand corner of the Session Log there is a hand written date "10/12" indicating a date of October 12 1970 for this overdub session.
