Laast Days of The Fillmore
14 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

Considering so few films exist of this era, this is a must see and I too indeed hope it makes it to DVD. I am at this point searching out a VHS copy. I have the vinyl soundtrack and I enjoy hearing many of the tracks often. Real footage of the workings of a Bill Graham presentation, with the Dead, Quicksilver, Santana, etc is a unique experience.And to see Bill Graham in action. Worth the experience. He was one in a billion. Attending this particular event, most would have died and gone to heaven to be within a bongs smoke cloud whisper of the Fillmore East on this 3 day event. The closing of the Fillmore East in NYC. Luckily here in the Bay Area the Fillmore West still goes on strong.

Truth be told. I saw this as a young teenager when it came out and on PBS once a few years ago. I would love to see it again. The feeling of the era is there and the music stands up well against memory. The Hot Tuna alone is superb. All in all a long hairs dream come true and in the film Garcia, Jorma and Jack and Bill Graham all look forever young. To be there once again in film would do everyone a fine solid.
