Thanks for Sharing this valuable Information.

Wow, this is historic stuff. In this day and age, people would be too concerned with lawsuits for filming people in the club, or the chance of a fire trapping people in there. Bill Graham was a great man and an important figure in the history of music in America. I read his book, and it was great.
