Grateful Dead, Allman Bros. Band, Hampton Grease Band: Sports Arena, Atlanta
Miller Francis Jr., The Great Speckled Bird, 16 May 1970
IF YOU WERE one of the few people who wasn't at the Sports Arena Sunday afternoon for the Grateful Dead concert, you've probably heard by now just what went down. Frankly, this was one of the greatest musical/sensual experiences the Atlanta hip community has ever had, rivalled only by another Dead offering in Piedmont Park after last year's Atlanta pop festival. Except that this year's big blow-out had more to do with where we are at now.
