Dimeola & Jan Hammer
Painters Mill Music Fair in Baltimore MD
Here is the stub from the show when I
saw Al Dimeola and Jan Hammer Jan played on lots of his LP's but only did a
few live shows.
The concert was U.F.B
If you like guitar players and don't know who Al Dimeola is then check out
What you are hearing is the beginning of
" RACE WITH DEVIL ON SPANISH HIGHWAY
" off the Elegant Gypsy LP
Painter's Mill was a great place to see concerts.
It was right outside
Here is some great info I got from the Founder of Treefrog
He produced lots of great shows in the Baltimore area.
I was the founder of Treefrog Productions in Baltimore.
an amazing series of concerts at Painter's Mill Music Fair in 1970
(Derek & the Dominoes, Elton John, Leon Russell, Poco, Emerson, Lake
and Palmer, Jethro Tull, Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter, Black Sabbath, Fleetwood Mac,
Stevens, Beach Boys, Bee Gees, Staple Singers, J. Geils, James Cotton, and a
others. . I had previously worked for Electric Factory up in Philly and put
a concert in Jan 1969 at the Baltimore Civic Center with Spirit, Nazz,
Blood, Sweat & Tears, Rhinocerous, Mother Earth. I also worked the
Festival as stage crew in June 1969
Here is a couple good storys.
On one of my last productions. Note that the artist spelled J. Geils wrong
(see poster below). They were not happy about that. The artist was
Alan Rose who
went on to become the main illustrator for
National Lampoon Magazine during its
first decade or so.
Speaking of unhappy bands, Cat Stevens threw a temper
tantrum and refused to play because the font size for his
name was a few points
smaller than for Procul Harum, who
shared the bill. Cat actually pulled out a
ruler and measured them.
Fortunately his road manager talked some sense into him
the show went on.
