Looking Awesome !
Great to see this new site where we can all share John's music and good times. Just watched on you tube the other day the 1970 concert at Royal Allbert Hall. what an awesome time that was. The crowd really stood on their feet at the end. I did not see an encore. Does anyone know if he came back out or was that not common at that time? Also like his version of The Weight . Take care and we will see ya'll around.

Yes a great concert that was, I have it on DVD and have watched it many times over. John did not like to do encores back then, just 45 min. kick ass concerts. I'd almost feel robbed to pay for the concert and leave 45 min or so later. But then again the energy the band had and putting on such a good concert probably would have made up for it. I saw him in 2009 at the age of 65 and he put on a no breaks or pauses 2 hour concert. An experience one needs to see it to believe.

10-4 Buddy, thanks for the info. It was amazing and those people sure let him know what they thought ! I'm sure they were as pleased as we are today with a 2 hour concert. Seen him twice, once at the Tampa Bay Trop where the Rays play. He opened with Center Field in, where else, in the middle of center field. They said that it was a first for him after a ball game and it was awesome ! Also seen him last year at Rib Fest in St Petersburg Fla. and that was awesome as always . He is a true music genius. I play guitar and his songs make my soul runneth over. It has always been as if he is in our minds and hearts and has the gift to express with words and music what most of us can only dream about. Take care.....FlaFogertyFan3
