Rough reference mixes for the Skull & Roses live album track "Bertha", which was recorded at the April 27, 1971 Fillmore East show. These studio mixes contain overdubbed vocals. Merl Saunders' organ (which was also later overdubbed in the studio) is significantly more pronounced than the released version. There's also some tuning prior to the song beginning that was edited out from the final album mix (which originally faded in with the song already in progress). The 1st rough mix is incomplete, as the reel is stopped at 1:10 in, but the 2nd mix is complete. - Alan
