    Wabash students were admitted free.

      Jim, that is right. We made a deal with the Student Council that for an investment in the concert, all students would be given a ticket.

    I was there along with my friends. This was an event they called Ralph’s Mother, locally. They had held at least one other event in another year previously As I recall.
    It was incredible that they got such big names to come to Crawfordsville at that time. Emerson Lake and Palmer were great and so was Johnny Winter. I don’t really remember Humble Pie that much because I wasn’t really into them. But I’m sure they played well too.

    Possibly the most amazing concert I ever attended — and I attended my share. I was not a Wabash student but was a Humble Pie fan. Went to enjoy them but was astounded by Keith Emerson’s synthesizer filling up that space with sound I had never heard before. All three acts were well-received but ELP knocked me out. My thanks and admiration to everyone who made this unforgettable night happen.

    Was that a Pan-hel event or Ralph’s Mother or ?

    It was my first and probably my best concert ever!
