Comment from the bootlegzone entry: “Judging by the reference number (713) and the titles, this LP was probably released in 1971, at least before the release of Pearl, since the tracks that were on that posthumous release have been given quite wildly guessed names here.”
Regarding equating the number with the release year, the method was incorrect but the conclusion was right. Now, PEARL was released January 11th, 1971 and that would contradict the previous statement, as without a doubt this was not released in the first 10 days of 1971. The real reason is, as always, that bootleggers were rarely fans of every single artist and recording they put out and so busy bootlegging they tended not to spend much time on research, even that as simple as checking song titles on an aquaintaince’ copy of the official album.
This should have been WCF’s biggest coup but it seems they themselves didn’t even know what they had here – a partial recording of Janis’s last ever live performance at Harvard Stadium, Boston, MA on August 12th, 1970 as part of the Schaefer Music Festival that year.
Unfortunately, the audio quality – never rated in my copies of HOTWACKS – is rough. Was that the reason that this was never copied, not even by CBM? At least I have never come across a copy of this. Another reason was a likely limited pressing run and no reissue by WCF themselves.
“The City of Boston’s “Summer thing” arts festival and the Shaeffer Brewing Company are jointly sponsoring a series of 18 concerts at the Stadium. Those appearing in concert include. The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, and the Supremes.
Though there have been occasional concerts in Harvard Stadium in past years, this is the first summer the University has lent the stadium for a full-fledged concert series.
While all went smoothly at the first concert last Monday, after Wednesday’s concert, some members of the crowd rushed into Harvard Square, snatching purses, and roughing up passers-by.
Wednesday’s post-concert action has stirred some criticism of the concerts among City officials. Those sponsoring the concerts had agreed to provide their own security; no police were stationed in the stadium during the concert.
Cambridge Police Chief James F. Regan and officials of “Summerthing” are now conferring to determine what stops should be taken to prevent a recurrence of Wednesday’s incidents. The Cambridge City Council may also take up the issue at its meeting tonight.
The Shaeffer Co. is underwriting the concerts to the amount of $360.000, “Summerthing”- established by the City of Boston two years ago to “cool off” the City during the summer- will receive a share of the proceeds. The share will probably be in excess of $30.000.
Though Harvard Stadium seats more than 35.000, tickets for the concerts are restricted to 10.000 seats, to allow all present a better sound. All tickets cost $2. The schedule of the remaining concerts is as follows:
