Fillmore: The Last Days

Bill Graham’s Fillmore West was a San Francisco phenomenon in the late 60s and into the 70s. Where else could you see the Miles Davis Quintet open for the Grateful Dead, or Woody Herman open for The Who? The venue’s final week featured exclusively Bay Area artists, and was documented in the film “Fillmore: The Last Days.” Enjoy these highlights: It’s A Beautiful Day – “White Bird” Quicksilver Messenger Service – “Fresh Air” & “Mojo” Cold Blood – “You Got Me Hummin” & “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free”
