Long Ago and Not That Far Away ...  

An outdoor multi-act rock concert in St Paul, Minnesota. I think it was 1970, but I was there so I don't remember…

Where? And who was playing?

It was at the old baseball stadium in St Paul (Midway Stadium?) located on the east side of Snelling Avenue—where Energy Park is today. Very close to where I work. Dave "Snaker" Ray and Tony "Little Son" Glover were there as M'sC, although I don't recall them performing. I could easily be wrong about that. Memory being what it is and the 60's being what they were I won't swear to anything … but I think this was the line-up:

Teagarden & Van Winkle
Little Richard
Long John Baldrey
Mother Earth
It's a Beautiful Day
The Almond Brothers Band

It's A Beautiful Day

Now that takes me back. I saw them at a Festival in Atlanta in the summer of 1970.

I'm guessing you really meant Allman Brothers Band, although I would not be too surprised to find that there was an Almond Brothers Band.

Awww, nuts! Of course it was the Allman Brothers Band! That's what I get for trying to just rattle off the list off the top of my head…

You got to see Long John Baldry AND It's a Beautiful Day? I worship the ground you walk on! Well to an extent I already did, but hey..
As far as memory I think it was Robin Williams line "If you remember the 60's, You weren't there." For me it was the 70's, but close enough. I have a question. Is there any chance you and the darling lady you are married to could be enticed out to dinner sometime soon? I miss you both and it's been an order of magnitude too long (mostly my own fool fault) since we've spent more than con-moments-in-passing.

Wow, all the long, straight hair parted down the middle. :D It's actually a very soothing image for me, because I was born in '70 and that's what everyone around me looked like. :)
