They played the 9th and 10th. Asphalt camping courtesy of Bill Graham.

....asphalt camping....100degrees and the honky tonk piano, playing all night long in the "camping" lot.....good times....
some guy put an upright piano in the back of a pick-up and brought it along. Murphy's Law dictates that he HAD to be parked next to my bus. Naturally, he played all night long. Most memorable was a song of his own creation:
and Shi-nin' Haaarleys
They wore tie dyes
My first show ever. Total dead virgin, 17 years old. Graduated from Marin Academy June 5 and we drove up to Sac, me, Chet, Janos, Cybele, Ginger, Jan. Have a picture of me and my sis in bathing suits and short shorts three rows from the stage. We all went swimming in the water slide park next door. Camped and jammed on guitars. Best time ever, I'll never forget how free I felt, out of school and grooving to the tunes. Was the start of a beautiful relationship.
Well, first of all. Took an original hippie to this show. It was his birthday present from me. Second of all...1st 3 songs, well, seemed like it was gonna be the same ol' dead stuff at that time, Tech problems etc, couldn't hear Phil that well, then all of a sudden...everything got worked out, heard Phil great, and... the whole show was like Europe 72! Bob even had those jazz riffs back! A great and splendid time was had by all!
The poster of Cal Expo Amphitheatre takes me back to my childhood days. When it actually happened, I remember walking to the theater holding the hand of my father. It was a wonderful experience for me. Now, amphitheatre is something that only Google can explain to the kids.
