Bill Graham, the czar of rock impresarios, reopens his renowned Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco to folks in tie-dyes and granny glasses who've come to hear their '60s stars: Joe Cocker, Joan Baez, Sly and the Family Stone, the Chambers Brothers, even Donovan. Unlike the other nostalgia shows we've heard lately—from Fabian, Chubby Checker, the Monkees and such—this one isn't cute and quaint. This music doesn't sound old. It still sounds great.
