Handbill with, arguably, the best line-up for a summer concert program ever: for the Schaefer Music Festival at Harvard Stadium in Cambridge (MA), from June 22 to August 17, 1970. All at $2.- a ticket. The concert on August 12 was Janis Joplin's last live performance ever. Ray Charles' concert on June 24 was ruined by fighs and shouts: "the noise subsided long enough for a brief set, and Charles left hurriedly."
