True.  Tape isnt too bad at all.


Im so thankful for the David Frost and Rooftop performances.


The SF show would not have been a good ending.  They were playing songs that were out of touch with where they were at, and they knew it.
They were also road weary, selling less tickets than the other tours theyd done, and were ready to move on.

Although ticket sales are kind of odd.


The   64   65   and   66   tours for SF were   17,000   18,000   and   25, 000   respectively.  The first two were at the Cow and the third of course was Candlestick.


And the Boston sales were way bigger in 66 than 64.  Different venue.


The Shea ticket sales were 11,000 less.

Those shows at Cow Palace were prolly sellouts, or close to it.

Weird that is is NOTHING to show for the Carnegie Hall show. ??? You'd think there would be some audio or video around.
