I was 16 and I hitch hiked from Montgomery Alabama. Most amazing music event of my life. We camped dead center of the quad speakers. What an experience!
I was there with a friend from kingsport, tn. Have never seen anything like it sense. Would love to have some pictures or film of it.
ELP blew everyone away! Keith Emerson playing Grand Piano while levitating & turning end-over-end - Most Amazing Ever!
I've been to a lot of concerts but by far the August jam in charlotte N.C. was the best. Will never forget that one. I was one of the ones that paid for a ticket.
Best ever allman bros, foghat
I WAS 18 AT THE TIME. ME AND A FEW OTHER GUYS DROVE IN FROM ASHEVILLE. WE GOT THERE EARLY SATURDAY MORNING. IT WAS STILL DARK. THE GATE HAD BEEN CRASHED A LITTLE EARLIER AND WE WERE WITNESSING THE AFTERMATH. WE HUNG OUT IN THE PARKING LOT AND SMOKED AND DRANK SOME BEERS UNTIL SUNLIGHT. I REMEMBER WALKING AROUND IN AN OCEAN OF PEOPLE. I WAS MORE AWARE OF SOME BANDS THAT WERE PLAYING MORE THAN OTHERS LIKE BLACK OAK AND ELP. I NEVER KNEW THE ENTIRE LINEUP. EVERYONE WAS HAVING A GOOD TIME AND WE PARTIED WITH TOTAL STRANGERS AS WELL AS FAMILIAR PEOPLE WE RAN IN TO. IT CERTAINLY WAS THE HOT TICKET AT THE TIME AND IT MADE A BIG IMPRESSION ON ME. I HAVE A CONCERT POSTER FROM THAT HANGING ON MY LIVING ROOM WALL. AH TOO BE YOUNG AGAIN
I was there. It was an expierence I don't think I'll ever forget. I felt like Alice in Wonder land! 10 of us drove from Kingsport Tennesse two day early.
