SEE NOTE Note: At least two separate 'takes' were recorded for "It's Impossible" on the 5th and 6th of
May, 1970, but it's not known which one was released as the original single and included within
the album. The original release was included in the 1976 compilation "A Legendary Performer"
and within the album notes Perry makes reference to having recorded the song twice.
The alternate take of this recording was inadvertently included within the 1992 compact
disc release of this album.
