Liner Notes

Concert impresario Bill Graham, the namesake of this website, was once referred to as a mix between Mother Theresa and Al Capone. In this 1989 interview with Scott Muni, there is only evidence of the former. The two chat almost entirely about 1967's Human Be-In, an event that helped to shape and define the San Francisco scene and the Summer of Love.

00:00 - Intro to the Human Be-In
01:09 - No rule book / young people in San Francisco
01:35 - A success in trust / a dangerous word
02:12 - Birth of the Summer of Love
03:15 - Some of the performances, the flower paratrooper
03:51 - How many people were there
04:01 - The local talent
04:36 - The pride
05:01 - Running overtime
05:38 - Crowds cleaning up after themselves
06:49 - New Year's Eve with the Grateful Dead
07:42 - Some new talent / some good reunions
09:08 - Some praise for Bill Graham / outro

Outtakes
10:10 - Other performers at the Be-In
11:00 - A Jerry Garcia sighting? / a great guy
12:49 - Musicians in the Bay Area
13:20 - Recent developments in Bill's life / racquetball
