    I drove up from Dutchess County for the show. I remember hearing Earth Opera for the first time and loving “The American Eagle Tragedy”. I have since been a Fan of Peter Rowan and David Grisman. As for the Doors there were two events occurring: the band playing songs and doing their best to stay in synch with Morrison who frequently was on his own trip that culminated with him rolling around on the stage floor screaming pointless profanities.
