The Dead, frequent performers at earlier Bill Graham New Year's shows, were well represented by the now familiar skull, bones and references to the passage of time. Innovative jazz/post-Bop banjoist Bela Fleck and Nigerian virtuoso drummer and chanter Olatunji were noted in the tambourine, African mask and small statues. This concert continued the pattern of willingness, indeed insistence, unique to Bill Graham to provide the audience with a diverse musical experience.
