Attendees of this show
I had a friend who has a copy on vinyl . Im trying to track him down for a copy, all i remember is it was an audience recording and not the best but worth having
My friend Diggs was taking Drum lessons from Bill at Swains Music in P.A. and he forced me to go with him. We were too young to get in and had to listen outside on Santa Cruz Ave. The first of LOTS OF SHOWS which I was lucky enough to see & hear.
Years later I met Dave Prudell who used to feed the Band at St. Michaels alley for free in Palo Alto.
I can just see it now.. kiked back with a phatty slice of pizza,a cold rootbeer,while listenin to a new potato cabose,or viola lee blues..Heck,I'm still having trouble remembering setlists from the 90's!..The long strange trip leaves the station!
Dude ... this was the VERY FIRST show! Do you really think that in May of 1965, there was somebody who KNEW that, come2013, somebody was gonna want to KNOW what went down in that Pizzeria? Nobody took notes back then, man - they just DANCED!
For the sake of completeness, even if we can't list the songs played, the date and venue of every show ABSOLUTELY belong here!
If someone's got this show on vinyl I will get on my knees and beg and plead for them to get it on the net
As a musician, I can say that I recorded nearly all of my shows and, at the least, always kept records of the set lists. Back in the mid-60s, maybe musicians weren't wired that way.
Bootleg recordings were nothing unheard of at the time. People were recording Charlie Parker back in the 1940s. I wouldn't be surprised if someone made a recording. Rock was still relatively new and quite exciting at that time.
