Music Night, January 16, 2015

My friends and I made a desperate attempt to get into Fillmore West for the last weekend Janis Joplin would perform with Big Brother and the Holding Company but, to no one’s surprise, it had sold out. (We were forced to trip at the Avalon Ballroom for a performance by John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, then with Mick Taylor. Not Janis but still fantastic.)

  1. Little Turtles bought me a turntable for Christmas… here is my first 45…. at age 6 I bought this

  2. I was told that (1) anyone who says they *remember* being at Woodstock probably wasn’t and (2) the number of people who say they were *at* Woodstock goes up by approx. 3% a year……

    • I almost posted that very clip, Terry, going with my favorite of all time Jefferson Airplane, but Janis leaped out at me from the side.

      I was not only not at Woodstock but I deftly avoided being at Altamont–unlike all my friends from Modesto. Not really prescience on my part, but the location was horrible and I couldn’t see anything good coming out of it.
