    Richie Havens didn't attend, to his credit, instead highlighting a free concert at the original location.

    When I read that, I thought, "Holy shit. One of them didn't sell out!"

    Well, lots of others, too. From the NYT archives: " Country Joe McDonald, Melanie, John Sebastian, Mountain, Blood, Sweat and Tears, Canned Heat, Iron Butterfly and Sha Na Na. Also on the bill are Fleetwood Mac, Judy Collins, the Chambers Brothers, Tom Paxton and Leon Russell." Arlo Guthie showed up.

    Havens organized it.
