As we await the Canadiens-Ducks close encounter of the second time (Habs lost 2-1 in Montreal on Dec. 18th), I thought I’d show some photos of the Atlantic City Pop Festival, the amazing 3-day event I was at in the summer of 1969, just a couple of weeks before Woodstock.
They were sent to me by another Orillian who was there, and until I saw these, I had no idea there were any personal pictures from that mighty festival that featured some of the world’s greatest rock acts, with about 150,000 people in attendance.
That’s me standing on the far left, and the fellow sitting next to me with the black and yellow shirt is Mike Williamson, whose comments you see here often.

No idea who the band is.
Again, no idea.
And the lineup, as good as it gets.
