August Jam 1974
This was a festival with many bands including: The Allman Brothers Band, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Foghat, Black Oak Arkansas, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Grinderswitch & PFM. The Eagles were to perform but canceled.
Tickets were $12.00 and people were let in to the speedway the afternoon before the concert. The day of the show people ended up breaking down the fence and it became a free show. I've heard estimates of 200K to 300K people were there. All I can tell you is you could not move and they did not have enough food, drink or bathroom facilities.
The show was amazing. ELP was incredible and set off a 30 minute fireworks display.
This was truly one of the best times ever!
there were more drugs than I had ever seen.
it was the southern version of woodstock.
I was right there when the fence came down.
Gregg Allman was wasted and had to be carried offstage.
ELP had a quadraphonic PA system.
