The Last Days of Fillmore (3LPs, 1976)
This is dedicated to all our friends and especially to those responded to our message and create these blogs to be the Lost-In-Tyme 100 mirrors (many of them did make an account and blog for the first time). We thank each and everyone of you - be sure that your help will be much appreciated by the music lovers worldwide, when someday their search for rare and wonderful music will lead them to one of the 100 Mirrors.

A few words about this record set: this is fairly rare, from what I've found out in my search, and never reissued (I've found a mention of a CD re-release in the early 90s, but nothing more - I don't know if it actually existed or if it was a bootleg). I'm sure that the Fillmore Auditorium, as it was officialy titled is known to everyone who's listening the music posted on LiT. All the rock/psychedelic/blues legends of the 60s honored its two stages (East and West).
Before Fillmore closed its doors, in 1972, Bill Graham gathered a lot of the greatest names of the era for one last week. These shows were filmed and released as a movie at 1972 (note that even the movie never officialy released on DVD - if you find it it's surely bootlegged) and later as a 3-LP box set, with a 7' single, a book and a poster. I managed to find the German version (released as a 3LP set without the inserts) from 1976. Enjoy some great performances from some of the best musicians ever. All you need more is the tracklist:
