Likely this was 68 which was

the 1st year in the new #4

Madison Square Garden

This was still Ringling's Ringling

3 flying acts & look

at ALL those 24 webs

Really grateful that

I was there back then

If it was '68, transition may have been in early formation, but the Feld team bought it in '67.

Chic Silber said...

68 was still credited to

John North & Dick Barstow

69 was the transition year

Barstow remained on a few

more years before dumped

very unceremoniously like

others of the old guard

Others shown the door, without notice or ceremony, included Senior and Junior Lloyd Morgan. One dismissed old-timer over there during this show-wide evisceration told me they operated on the philosophy of "learn everything from the experts, then fire them and run it your own way".

Chic Silber said...

Lloyd Sr wasn't dumped but relegated

to advisor or consultant status

Lloyd Junior got the old heave ho

with very little warning
