Fascinating stuff for those who weren't around in those days, and a blast from the past for those of us who were:

Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker & Bob Gibson all on the same bill, for $4.50.
Blind Faith for $6.50 in the New "Air Conditioned" Madison Square Garden.
"Remember...Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is The Beatles"

Anybody remember going to any of these?

I recorded Larry Coryell and Foreplay on WLIR the night the Allman Bros. played The Nassau Colliseum. I saw the ABB the night before I believe. I see the poster only lists one night, so it must be another year. I used to go to The Calderone Theater on occasion as well.

Anybody remember going to any of these?I was definitely at the Cafe Au Go Go one of the nights that the Airplane & The Paupers played there. The Paupers also opened up for Cream (same venue) about 2 months later & I saw that show as well. Paupers "Magic People" album highly recommended!
