The 2nd Annual Maggot Brain Guitar Jam Session featuring Michael "Kidd Funkadelic" Hampton.

An estimated 53 guitar players on Maggot Brain, with players spread out before the stage and using small amplifiers. However, Hampton is the only one heard coming through PA. There's vocal mic distortion present at times, coming through PA. The mix in general wasn't great. Also a couple instances of phasing as people walked in front of the mics, which were place right in front of stage left speaker stack (no other place to go). It was a wild, festive scene.
