The hour-long set contains one original song and several cover versions. "I Don't Need No Doctor" was the biggest hit from the album, having been issued as an edited single and reaching #73 on the Billboard Hot 100 in October 1971.
The song listed as "Four Day Creep", and attributed to the classic blues singer Ida Cox, bears no melodic or lyrical resemblance to her self-recorded composition of that title. The single version of "I Don't Need No Doctor" was backed with "A Song for Jenny" from the Rock On album, which Marriott wrote for his first wife, Jenny Rylance.
After the album was mixed, and shortly before it was released, guitarist Peter Frampton left the band because of growing friction between him and Marriott.
The album's steady sales helped it to become the band's first RIAA gold record. Its popularity helped the band's previous album, Rock On, reach gold album status.
On October 29, 2013, Omnivore Recordings released all four sets recorded that weekend as a four CD set Performance: Rockin' the Fillmore-Complete Recordings.
