It was Sept 8, 1974 a month after Nixon resigned. It was a really hot steamy day, enormous crowd, it was jam packed. A lot of us spread out on the middle grassy section had thoughts of how it must have been somewhat like this at Yasgur's farm 6 yrs before. The music, the vibe, the smell of grass pervaded your senses all day - it was fantastic. It was in fact, our Woodstock.
CSN&Y played for almost four hours! Joni Mitchell joined with them along with her segment. They were great, they did not disappoint. The Beach Boys, Jesse Colin Young played earlier. But the best by far was CSN&Y.
I'll never forget the announcement overhead that Pres Gerald Ford had pardoned Richard Nixon a low rumble of "boo" spread through the crowd. We knew then "I'm not a crook" Tricky Dick would never come to justice. It made thier playing of "Ohio" all the more poignant. This day epitomized my memories of that time... the politics, the war, the counterculture, and oh the music... all came together in that mass of humanity that warm summer evening. I'll never forget it.
I was 22.
