In september 1974, parts of the three shows on December 8, 9 & 10, 1973 at The Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, California were released on the double-LP set Roxy & Elsewhere, along with music recorded a few months later (on May 8, 1974 at the Edinboro State College, Edinboro, Pennsylvania and on May 11, 1974 at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, Illinois), all of that material being overdubbed and remixed.

Roxy by Proxy consists of unreleased material recorded live from the two shows held on December 9 & 10, 1973 at The Roxy Theatre, Hollywood, California. Thereby, Roxy by Proxy presents a material as the audiences in attendance heard it live, a material different from any of that used on the late 1974 release.
