The festival was to be eight days long, but was four days late in getting started, with abbreviated
line-ups each of the three days that did take place.  The first stage collapsed.  The police were
shooting at attendees and arresting many.  The shift river currents took at least two lives.  Food and
facilities were nil, and the IRS were at the gates collecting what receipts they could from the 100,000
festival-goers who would otherwise have paid to get in.  Most paid nothing to get in, however.The
weather was ruthless--exceedingly hot and very humid, and when it rained, it came down so hard one
could not stand out in it as it actually hurt to be pelted by the downpours! On the third day, Melanie
opened and performed a full solo set, and then Stephen Stills and Neil Young played, but the plug
was pulled before they had finished their set, and it was officially over at that point.
Several bright spots: The Amboy Dukes, Chuck Berry, and..., Brownsville Station!   Thank you Randy
