[WS: ] The only time I ever saw Floyd was
pre-Wall; I was fortunate to also be at an equally incredible
concert location - the State University of NY at Stony Brook,
1968-71 (well, I guess the greater NY area gets credit, since we frequently
ventured into Manhattan for some other great show). Pink Floyd gave an
incredible show, but also there were *so* many other highlights: the Allmans
with Duane, Alvin Lee from 10 Years After leaving the stage soaked in sweat
and tears of joy, Moby Grape nearly having a fistfight on stage (on the same
bill with Procol Harum), the Jefferson Airplane at their peak (right before
the Airplane dissolved into the Starship), the Who (with Moon) playing Tommy
start to finish, Joe Cocker twice - with the Grease Band and the travelling
circus known as Mad Dogs and Englishmen (both great), and my personal favorite
of the entire period, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Cassady playing acoustic (well,
not Cassady) for 4 hours straight. I think most of these concerts were
probably about $10 each for students. Unfortunately, I was there a year too
late to see Hendrix (but I'd seen him the year before at what is now the
tennis stadium in Flushing Meadow Park, with Janis opening - or vice versa.
Same summer as the Doors and the Who on one bill). I also saw Zep with Bonham
elsewhere in that park. I even saw Pentangle, one of my favorite and
rarely-exposed groups, at Carnegie Hall in 71. I also saw Miles, playing with
most of the "Bitches Brew" band, opening(!!!) for Neil Young solo at
Carnegie (or was it Fillmore East?), a great concert all around.
