CROSBY, STILLS & NASH: THE SPECTRUM (June 23, 1977)

Also pictured are: bass player, George “Chocolate” Perry (blue shirt in background), Drummer, Joe Vitale, (orange shirt rear) and road manager, Michael John Bowen, right of Vitale. An Aramark refreshments vendor (red and white striped jacket) slipped into the entourage.

This photo is noteworthy as it documents a significant change in the back hallways and utilization of space. Framework for a vertical storage area has been erected over the space where the Sixers’ basketball court was stored. In addition, the walls have been painted a beige tone  with the bottom remaining gray. Photos of Stills’ visit with Neil Young the previous year, offer a clear comparison between the old and new presentations.
