Original released in 1970

For some reason, the mixing of the Stage Fright tapes was done independently by Todd Rundgren and by Glyn Johns in England, and their final results were quite different from each other.
The 1994 Gold CD release of Stage Fright contain different mixes than the original release, according to the All-Music Guide.
