Robert Ronnie Branaman: "My poster for a Dance Concert, Monterey Ca., 1966. A year before the Pop Festival. We promoted the Dance Brotherhood of the Sprit, Susan and I; Karma Productions, Sam Most who did most of the real work. My band was The Gladstones (our motto "we're glad we're stoned" ) It was a trip and hanging with Janis Joplin and housing the Band, for 3 days. Her singing blew us all away. Neal Cassady and Allen Ginsberg were attendant." August 2009.
