Ironically, Ode's first move after signing King was to package her in a "rock band" that actually consisted of just her and three sidemen - bassist Charles Larkey and guitarist Danny Kortchmar, both of whom backed King on her later albums (Larkey eventually married King), and studio ace Jim Gordon.
King had suddenly hit her commercial peak and was clearly thrilled to play the venue, so her between-song patter also is interesting.
