This from – “The brick invitation was the talk of the music business and caused pandemonium at the post office. It was proudly displayed on executive desks and fancy coffee tables awaiting the big night. Over the phone, Phil Spector freaked out the new LA receptionist when he threatened to stop by to kill the person who had misspelled his name (Specter) on the invitation.

Hendrix didn’t show for the December 4, 1969 opening, although everyone else who was anyone in LA Rock and Roll spent the night popping back and forth between the Record Plant and Beach Boy Dennis Wilson’s 25th birthday party. The Woodstock tapes had arrived earlier that week from New York and even though Jimi wasn’t there, his Star-Spangled Banner was pushing the limits of the monitors in Studio A. The Altamont Free Festival, “The West Coast Woodstock,” was scheduled to take place two days later up north,”
