  3. There was at least one Ark show (Gate 5, Sausalito) ..sometime in the Licketts 5 era, I believe.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Another one for lineup #9 - I saw them in Spokane WA sometime in the winter/spring of 1972-73, no idea now what venue but might have been a Gonzaga University auditorium. Over 40 years later, still one of my high points in live music.
