I will always be grateful to my Amigo de Musica Gian Franco Giudici (from Milan, Italy) for sending me this "jewel" of lost performances! I had seen it 1st in the early 1970s, at home in my high school days, but we only had a B&W TV at home, so I had only seen it in B&W, this is the FULL COLOR original, and it looks & SOUNDS INCREDIBLE!! Introduced by the late music promoter Bill Graham, it features amazing film footage of performances & sounds by The Byrds, The Elvin Bishop Group, Albert King, Sha Na Na & Van Morrison!! Recorded live on stage at The Fillmore East , New York City, September 23, 1970.
