Rambling note - trash without regret:
I was volunteering at KPFK when Firesign tore up their hall one night
preparing an album. I shot the event on Leicas and made monochrome
prints for the Folio, the station's program magazine. A few years later,
I came close to discarding the pages of uncut slides, but figured some
day I'd find a way to get them to the remains of the troupe.
About a year ago, a friend suggested how I could find them and I was
able to send the pictures along. Unfortunately, toting the cameras meant
no audio recording, so my contribution has already been made.
Now, *that* session was a unique experience.
