OLD TIME FEELING, IT'S ALL OVER, SILVER HAIRED DADDY and WAITING ON THE FAR SIDE BANKS OF JORDAN were overdubbed: July 23, 1976 (3rd session).

John Smith says that SILVER HAIRED DADDY was recorded on February 25, 1976 and only assigned a master number at this session. I feel this is unlikely as it uses exactly the same personnell as the other masters in this session. Maybe SILVER HAIRED DADDY was recorded in February and overdubbed at this session.
