From 1968 to 1971 Bill Graham's Fillmore East in New York City was the East coast Mecca for the music that shaped a generation. Not only that: thanks to a visionary technical staff and unsurpassed psychedelic light shows, the Fillmore East stage was the place where rock music became rock theater. Now available in paperback, the highly acclaimed Live at the Fillmore East tells the story of its heyday with hundreds of behind-the-scenes photographs and exclusive interviews. Included here are photos of the Who's premiere of Tommy in 1969; John and Yoko's surprise encore to a Frank Zappa concert; the jam between the Allman Brothers, the Grateful Dead, and Mick Fleetwood in 1970; Janis Joplin's first performance after signing with CBS records; Jimi Hendrix's New Year's Eve concerts; Van Morrison during the first-ever television taping of a rock concert in 1970; and many other defining moments of rock history.
Clean, bright softcover with French folds. Perfect binding tender, but still intact.
