A lot of requests for more Grootna. The biggest problem is there is not a whole lot out there.I did manage to come across this set from the closing nights at the Fillmore West in 71 Enjoy!

The band acquired well-known San Francisco concert promoter Bill Graham as its manager and signed a contract with Columbia Records. Its self-titled debut album was produced by former Jefferson Airplane member Marty Balin and released in December 1971. It did not chart. Grootna continued to perform around the Bay Area into the summer of 1972, then broke up, after which former members joined with Balin in another short-lived band, Bodacious D.F.
