    I was there. Anti-war dropout on the road that summer, stumbled into the Blues scene there. That summer of ’70 was a downer in the midst of great music, the deaths of Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix. The Kent State murders were still hot talk, then this scene happened. And I may have been projecting, but it seemed to me that in the thousands of black and white souls, there was grieving. At Kent State, the Movement had met mad militarization (prophetically). But the Ann Arbor Blues Festival hit me right that summer, in a deeply disturbed USA.

    I was there too…as a 17 year old kid who couldn’t afford to buy a program. Fortunately I found my copy as I was leaving on the last day as Son & Edie House were doing an acapella gospel number. The copy you see here is a scan of my copy!
