Does anyone know why there are only three soundboard tracks from Long Beach '72 and their history? What Is And What Should Never Be, Dancing Days and Moby Dick. IMO, they sound better than any other unofficial board tapes, including any from 73,75,77. They are crystal clear and have a great sense of space that most boards don't have. I love the unprocessed sound way more than HTWWW. Are these multi tracks that sneaked out while HTWWW was being put together? It's interesting that these are the only known board tracks from '72 and they are so damn great sounding. Hoping some of the very knowledgable folks here can comment on this.
I attended (almost positive, year in question) this concert and somehow rocket like fireworks lunched from the floor seating maybe 20 or 30 rows from the stage, slightly to stage right. They were checking all the ticketholders for liquor at the checkpoint. Robert asked the audience to stop the fireworks, and when it continued he threatened the persons responsible that he would stop the concert!!! the fireworks continued and the band left the stage. later the house lights come up and the announcer said that the band had left the building. We began stomping our feet in protest and I remember how powerful the sound and feeling of the physical demonstration felt. Finally we were convinced to leave the building. we left without aggregation!!! And were meet with what looked like all the Long Beach PD cars in two lines forming a path to the street. The did not interfere with all of us kids. If anyone has more information or recording I would appreciate it.
