Excellent festival gig

Seems like the GD were the only well-known band on the bill. Anyone remember the likes of Sabatic Goat, The Portland Zoo or The Weeds? I'm sure Sabatic Goat would have been bigger than the Beatles if they decided to make it on the national level!!

A nice soundboard recording exists. Apparently The Dead were doing what they intended to do at Woodstock. Unfortunately the Bullfrog 2 Festival never got much subsequent publicity and has faded into the pages of time.

Some Bullfrog Festival info

Apparently this festival does have a write-up online. Quite interesting.

Suzie -Portland

Also playing at this festival were Taj Mahal and a pre celebrity New Riders of the Purple Sage. My information comes from an old handbill and my husband's memory ,he was the bass player for Sand, at that time.
