"This video is from Sonoma State College in April of 1970. This was a free concert for the college students and local community. This is a well-recorded video/ audio for it's time. What was truly amazing was guest artist, Nicki Hopkins, playing a grand piano somewhere in the background. I was there with my friends, dancing in the fresh spring air. What a different world it was! So glad that this showed up on you tube."

Editor's note. Note the extraordinary horn-loaded 'personal pa' for Mr. Cippolina. Also the scintillating (sorry, but no other word for it) twin lead guitar work from Cippo and Duncan. In some versions they do claim to use a “rattlesnake as a necktie” but curiously, not in this version.
