Great music. Thanks. Love Country Joe's voice. These early recordings reveal how amazing they were for that time or this. Bass Strings trips along.

I was 13 years old and I was there - my first concert! Unfortunately I don't remember anything about CJ&F. No, I wasn't high, (too young). All I remember about that day was boarding the Trans-Love bus, Every Mother's Son, The Seeds and Steve Miller Blues Band playing late in the afternoon as people were leaving. What a glorious day.
