Obscure Little Santa Monica Show with 30,000 Downloads, March 7, 1970

Between Fillmore East February and Harpur in May, there is this quirkly incomplete rare look at March 1970 in Santa Monica. I kind of really like audience tapes of this era with Black Peter leading the way.  So fun to hear it from the fan point of view.  Who knows the whole set? Wish I did
Crowd is sure quiet for a rock n roll show in 1970.

I recommend the one recording of this show, its here

Even weirder is that was promoted by Concert Associates, A Filmways Company (as in The Beverly Hillbillies, a Filmways presentation)

Presented some Daily Bruin and LA Times information, and currrent industry flavor

Same Night Downton about Ten Miles Away from SM Civic

From Deadlists

3/7/70 - Saturday posters tickets, passes & laminates
One [27:57] ; Black Peter [8:54] % China Cat Sunflower [3:18] > Jam [2:01] > I Know You Rider [4:28] > High Time [5:48] ; Tuning (1) [3:16] ; Dire Wolf [0:12#]
Two [47:23] ; Not Fade Away [#5:13] > Drums [4:59] > Good Lovin' [2:53] > Drums [0:13] > The Other One [6:#48] > Not Fade Away [2:26] > Turn On Your Lovelight [24:51#]
Comments This tape has circulated for years mislabeled "3/8/70" but Joey Newlander's archival research demonstrates that this show actually took place on 3/7/70. There are probably songs missing before and after Black Peter; on the circulating copy the Dire Wolf breaks off and the tape cuts in on the beginning of NFA. There must be tunes lost after Dire Wolf as well. (1) Includes New Speedway Boogie Tease.
It is impossible to tell whether the two fragments come from one set or two. There is a tape flip 3:27 into The Other One; probably not much is lost here.
