Comments "Party For Chocolate George", Monday 1:00 PM. Other artist(s): Big Brother and the Holding Company. Colin does not say what set Schoolgirl was played in. Colin Pringle: "About the wake for Chocolate George, there were so many people there, I couldn't even see the stage. It was held in Lindley Meadow, which is near the polo field. We were stuck in traffic. I remember the motorcycle police writing down license numbers in their metal notepads. I didn't hear the Grateful Dead again until a couple of years later when I got their first album. The only part of that album I recognized was the part where Pigpen carries on about "a tiger in your tank" from Good Morning Little School Girl. I can't be sure that the wake is the first place I heard that, but it might have been." to see the concert art: <
