When my parents sold their house just after college, my mom asked me if I wanted anything. I was in California and not terribly concerned about it. Now, 35 years later that” anything “included a shoe box filled with at least a hundred concert ticket stubs , a bunch of ski stuff including two pairs of Spademan comp bindings in boxes, T-shirts ,skiing and otherwise and god knows what else. At that age, I wasn’t concerned about it-I’d moved on .Now, I wish I had them. Ah, youth...

I grew up a stones throw from The BSO summer home, Tanglewood- more performances than I can count or remember. My first experience with live music was there and I was changed forever . I was lucky to have parents who liked and appreciated a wide variety of music , what a gift.

Been to Tanglewood a number of times too, the most memorable was the Rite of Spring which i moved up to a very close seat for. Life changing.

My parents too took us to a lot of things, including modern dance. Alvin Ailey, etc.

I don't remember much of anything before 18 years old, except those concerts and some high school memories.

Second loudest concert I've ever attended. Blue Cheer was first.

Taj Mahal playing solo was the headliner, but the promoter had the sense to have him go on first before our ear drums were destroyed.. He was incredible.

Taj is still out there doing it last I knew. He has /had a farm in Western Mass . and produced crops. I vaguely recall the volume of M. O. but I do recall the soaring parts of “ a love supreme’ - incredible.

Awesome. I just edited mine to include Cheap Trick and Heart a couple times. My SO loves Primus and has threatened/promised to take me to a show. We tried to see tower of power one time but couldn't get in.

Sorry to say this was a later version without any of the big 3, still a really fun show!
My brother was lucky enough to see them at the Fillmore with a young Jimmy Page...
