Looks like it, but that would be pretty dumb... not to mention illegal.

Maybe its really John Denver. :shock: If it is Owsley,it had to be before Woodstock. (IRS troubles from LSD sales) Down in Monterey seems logical.

Gram Parsons Archives Vol. 1 chronicles three of those celebrated shows—April 4,5, and 6, 1969 at San Francisco’s renowned Avalon Ballroom, where the Burrito Brothers opened for the Grateful Dead. Ironically, it was in the Dead’s extensive vaults of recorded shows that these live gems were unearthed. As such, it is no coincidence that these recordings are, sonically, the best live Parsons to date. The legendary Owsley “Bear” Stanley, who served as the Grateful Dead’s soundman for many years, was at the controls and captured the Burrito Brothers’ music with a clarity and energy no other soundman ever did.
:wink:

Has that many speakers ever put out that much crap? Isn't that some kind of record?
