As owner of the Gypsy Tribute Page, I am wondering if anyone has pictures of Gypsy?
I have some on my site, but none of the Fillmore East show(s).
Thanks!

During the Christmas season of `70 there was a concert given that is not
listed.It was a 'Toys For Tots' concert,the price of admission was a toy
for a child.I can't rember exactly who played but I'm sure it is not
listed.Taj Mahal I believe was one of the performers.I bought tickets
for Savoy Brown for Dec.18 or 19 when I was at the show.I did not see
the show listed previous to that date.

I forgot about this one too, a great album - Virgil Fox / Bach Live at
Fillmore East: Heavy Organ

name:   Bruce McDouall
name:   Randy Zahakos

You should incorporate a history section of the building in the section
called Historical info.  I know it was called the Village ??? before it
was the Fillmore and it was known as The Saint in the mid 80's still
putting on shows under some other ownership.  Is somebody actually
working on this? 

In the Discography section add the following Grateful Dead CD's:
Fillmore East 2-11-69 and Dick's Pick's Volume Four

Also Add Jefferson Airplane - Live at the Fillmore East to the
discography section.

Some other cd's that should be added to discography section as I sit
here thinking about it is Derek and The Dominos - Live at The Fillmore,
The Allman Brothers band - The Fillmore Concerts (different from Live at
Fillmore East) and Jimi Hendrix  - Live at Fillmore East all these are
two CD sets.

Some more entries for discography section are - Humble Pie -
Performance: Rockin' The Fillmore, Allman Brothers - Fillmore 2/70,
Grateful Dead - History Vol. 1 - Bear's Choice, Mothers of Invention -
Playground Psychotics ( Fillmore East and other venues) anf The
Gratefule Dead - Grateful Dead     ( Fillmore East and Winterland).  If
you need scans of these I can provide them over time as everything I
have sent you I have on CD.  Are you thinking of incorporating a Bootleg
section as well - because I have those too.

Thought of one more for discography - Miles Davis - At Fillmore: Live at
Fillmore East

Good Ideas Randy..We're looking at this and some other new sections on the site. Thanks for your input. Check back often!

Great Site! I'm looking for information on the Group "AORTA" 2/69
Fillmore East.
Great Album. Rumors abound that things didn't go well for them at the
Fillmore.
Thus the end.
If you have any info on this band, please get in touch.

thanks

comment: Hello! Great site. I was(and still am) a fan of the UK rock  group Family. 
Any pics or info on them at the Fillmore East? Thanks, Randy.

comment: Allman Brothers headlined for Friday late show during 11-13  Mar 71 show, not Johnny Winter 
(most of the stuff on the Live From the Fillmore East record were from that show. 
There was a bomb scare and the Allmans promised to make up for it. I recall walking out of the FIllmore 
at about 9:00am. Elvin Bishop jammed with the Allmans. Some of that came out on disc years later).
 Jake and the Family Jewels were on the bill 28-29 Aug 70 with Savoy Brown and the others. 
It was the only show I can recall where I saw 4 acts. Kim Simmons from Savoy Brown now lives in 
Oswego NY and is still playing. Sure wish I had kept the Iron Butterfly/Led Zeppelin program pictured. 
That was my first trip to the Fillmore East! The $5.50 top price at closing sure beats the $50 (plus $7.25 in surcharges)
 I just paid to see the Stones in Syracuse.

comment: Dear Sirs, Came across the site by accident while searching vintage guitar links? Wow! 
Proud to say i'm 43 and saw several shows at FE! Was only 15-16 at time! Here's my list with 
comments/corrections?/recolections--1-2-70 Dead. My 1st FE and 1st Dead show combined!
 I actually have a good 1st gen tapr too! Cold Blood was awesome too. Had a female front ala Airplane. 
Lighthouse had about 15 guys including horns-sounded like Blood Sweat and Tears!
1-16-70 Santana and James Gang. I actually went to see James Gang! 
Joe Walsh was as young as I was. Feb 26 or 27? TYA. I remember both Doug Kershaw and 
Zephyr on the bill- you don't list them together-can't remember which date I saw and don't have the stub! 
Great show! TYA did most of Cricklewood Green and SHESSH albums- ended with 20m min. 
woodstockian Going Home!!

9-11-70 Byrds, D&B Clapton did not show with Delaney and Bonney as rumored! 
This was Byrds with the late,great Clarence White on guitar (same line up as Untitled album) 
April 5 Humble Pie, Catus, Edgar Winter and Tin House-- FYI there were four groups as the original headliner was 
Jethro Tull! They cancelled at last minute due to illness--Humble Pie was fill in! They announced change 
while everyone was already on line outside! They offered refund or Humble Pie/Tin House added to bill. 
Pie headlined and did set similar to Rockin the Fillmore album! Not a bad fill in. That was my last show,
 thought FE would be around forever, I guess.  Another FE tall (but true) story--My buddy offered me a 
ticket for New Years Eve 69-70 but I already had the Dead tix for 1-2-70.At that age, my MOM would 
not let me go to NYC (I'm from jersey) twice in one week,so I told him "I'll see JIMI some other time"- 
the rest is history. I do remeber Bill Graham commenting how he was still recovering from "one hell of a show 
last night" when he introduced your friends and mine, the Grateful Dead on jan 2!. Its ironic (or fate?) 
that came across this site and told this story on or about the same date 27 years later!!!!!!!!!
I used to have all of the programs from these shows but traded them to a collector about 1980-should have kept the Dead 1-2 70 as it also had Jimi on the cover and was a joint program for the whole weekend. Still have the ticket stib for April 5 that says Tull on it! Hope you enjoyed my ramblins about FE. If we only knew then what we know Now!

 Friends of the Fillmore East, I can't tell you how absolutely surprised and delighted
 I was to read about your website in the December,1997 issue of DISCOVERIES magazine.
I grew up in the Bronx and was WEANED by Bill Graham at the Fillmore.I have many a 
great memory of the Fillmore and the many groups I saw there in just the short time it was open. 
Thanks again for starting up this page.

Sincerely,

comment: Jim and Larry- Nice job on the Fillmore East website. A highlight for me was 
Johnny Winter's NYC debut. It was during the summer (I remember being severely sunburned.) 
He was introduced by Mike Bloomfield, then with his Electric Flag. Hope to see you both in Long Island in May.

Regards, Victor (American Vintage,Inc.)

comment: Dear Friends, Great site. The Fillmore East was like "church" to me. I always 
looked forward to going there. I have one important historical inquiry. I attended Derek & The Dominos 
late night show on Oct. 23, 1970, which is today the best concert I ever attended-period. 
These shows have been audiowise been documented several times. Yet, the one fault is that there 
have been no photos available from those shows, at least towards those lp and CD releases.  
I have one picture that was taken on that night that was actually made into a poster for Personality 
Posters on 8th ST. in Greenwich Village. The photo on the poster is credited to J. McInnes. 
Are there any other or any photos known from  that night? The photo I have is rare and shows 
Clapton in a close up in his beige suit, clean shaven and looking incredibly classy. I wrote an accurate 
and printed article for a Clapton newsletter called "Slowhand" last year also inquiring about photos from 
that night, but  only received positive letters from people who enjoyed the article. 
Any help you  give me on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Also I would be more than 
happy to submit the story to you for your web site. It is very detailed and includes facts that surround 
the going to these shows.

Very Sincerely,

JD Smith KUSF-FM, San Francisco

comment: While it is true that Edgar Winter and Johnny Winter were scheduled on the night of 
|June 24, 1971, Johnny OD'd and didn't show.  Instead, B.B. King and Albert King subbed. 
Believe me, I was there!! It was a great show, but the last public performance on June 26 with the Allman Brothers 
was the best concert I ever saw.

comment: I am looking for a calander featuring poster art from the fillmore. 
Can anyone please help me locate it? It was seen in Tower Records in San Francisco, 
but they are out of stock. Please help, would like to order as Christmas gift. Thank you.

There are plenty of places to purchase genuine Fillmore Posters and handbills. Try www.artrock.com.

comment: I enjoyed your site and would like to know if there is a place to get t-shirt or other memorabilia 
from that place we called home every Saturday night.

We'll try to find some additional sites, but try www.artrock.com and see ebay for listings.

comment: I have a dozen fillmore programs-Johnny Winter, Poco, 
Allmans, Edgar Winter, J. Geils, Savoy Brown & more...Any interest?...Lets bring the last show 
back for a reunion...nice thought.

That is a nice thought Ron. Can you scan some of those programs to share with us all on this site?

 

We would like to hear from anyone out there if you have any stories, experiences, photos or other items you would like to share to add to the history of the greatest concert venue of all time.
