The CD insert contains two sets of notes, the one on the inside front cover being from Jerry Donahue, which starts like this:
“Having arrived in Denver on a night off, Sandy and I decided we’d like to go to Ebbets Field to see what the club, where we would be playing the following night, looked like. To our surprise we found that Minnie Ripperton was about to go on stage. Sandy and I sat in the audience and witnessed a stunning performance that moved everyone there. I had heard Minnie’s recordings before, but Sandy had not and she was completely amazed at her uniquely beautiful vocal style.
“When it was over, Sandy just sat there seemingly transfixed by what she had just experienced. When I spoke to her, she just looked at me and said “How am I going to be able to appear here tomorrow night after what everyone has just heard tonight?”
