About 15 years ago, in return for a favor I had done, Billy Mundi sent to me an image of the Mothers. According to Billy, they were performing at the Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles. (NOTE: This may actually be the Lindy Opera House on Wilshire Blvd.) It appears to have been a photograph from his private collection. I decided to wait until some time after Billy's death before posting it. I've never seen it before on the internet. So - here it is . . .

8)

The file very small, so it pixilates a large amount when in full-screen and is virtually unprintable. The second image is the result of treatment with Adobe LightRoom to "improve" the image.

It's a cool lineup. Can you identify the crew?

^^^^ The picture first appeared in the "No Commercial Potential" book by David Walley in 1972.
According to the book, it is the Lindy Opera House. This is the first time I've seen the pic complete.
It covers 2 pages in the book and is split down the middle.

That's cool about Billy sending you the pic!

Back row: Jim Black, Billy Mundi, Roy Estrada, Bunk Gardner, and Don Preston

Center stage: Frank (wearing his PIPCO shirt) and Ray Collins
