Fillmore Exit Music

Nancy Lewis, New Musical Express, 17 July 1971

IT'S ALL OVER now. The Fillmore East closed its doors at approximately 5.0 a.m. recently — after a strenuous and occasionally sentimental night of action. The final event started at about 8.30 p.m. on a Sunday. Albert King opened the show, and the stage was never empty after that... Edgar Winter's White Trash, Mountain, The Beach Boys, Country Joe, J. Geils Band, The Allman Brothers — it went on and on.
