Devotees of the 1960s San Francisco sound will appreciate this driving jam with the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane and Santana. Personnel includes lead guitarists Jerry Garcia, Jorma Kaukonen and Carlos Santana, plus bassist Jack Casady. (And is that Janis Joplin dancing from 2:01 to 2: 05 and 5:01 to 5:09?) The performance took place on February 4, 1970, at the Family Dog Ballroom in San Francisco. Though I wasn't at this concert, I experienced two-thirds of this lineup at a free Jefferson Airplane and Santana concert at the Central Park Bandshell on August 10, 1969.
