Can anybody help with a concert date?
Pat Harcarik, a new correspondent, writes to BtP as follows:
'Duh. I saw you guys perform at what was known as Painter's Mills Musical Fair in the suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland, USA. I don't see that on your list of concerts. Altho my memory is not what I'd like it to be, I remember Marianne and Jerri leaping up at "Shalimar, the trumpet..." I first heard InheldinwasI on 17 May 1970. So, the concert was after that date.
'I want to know why B-more isn't listed in the concerts.'
