These recordings of "Ladies Of The Road" are from the very first session for the "Islands" album on (insert date) - and were not recorded at Command Studios, as with the rest of the album, but at Islands Studios. They are at the faster tempo, which can be heard in contemporary live recordings, before the band settled on the better known tempo and format.

All the original studio sessions from 1971 are being made available by download in 2021 to satisfy recent changes to copyright laws: All recordings must be released within the fiftieth year of their recording in order to continue to enjoy copyright protection. So, these have been released to the DGMLive faithful – and are thus protected!



The exact recording dates have not been annotated on the original tapes. DGMLive has therefore assigned various session dates throughout the period in1971, when the album was known to have been largely recorded.
