LP version. "The closing of the Fillmore West (actually, the Carousel Ballroom) put a big dent in the 'City By the Bay'. This performance was taken from the closing concerts for the venue. The list of bands that Bill Graham didn't want was also big... and the Flamin' Groovies were on it, for years. Our first manager was Bill's right hand man and when he quit working for Bill to manage the Flamin' Groovies this this did not sit well with Bill, so the Groovies went up and down in Bill's eyes. So it came as a big surprise when we discovered he wanted us for this big and important event, to participate in a series of shows leading up to the closing of this legendary venue. I remember the show well. The difference in playing this gig as opposed to the Whisky-A-Go-Go in L.A. was like night and day. At the Whisky, we were the house band (two summers in a row); at the Fillmore, we were up for grabs. Oh yeah, this was our last show with my good buddy, Roy Loney." --Cyril Jordan (Flamin' Groovies)
