Notes

1-3,5-7,9-14  Dylan/Midler shared vocal.

4 is very brief, sung by Midler.

5 shared vocal, but mostly by unidentified male, probably one of the studio musicians.

8 probably without Dylan.

9-11 are very brief.

Mixed with extensive chats between Dylan, Midler and others, working on lyrics, gossiping, flirting.

Circulating tape may be running in the wrong order.

Stereo studio recording, 37 minutes.
