You were actually there! Far out man! Birth of the grateful dead and
everything. Must've been a hell of a party.
Did you ever read "The electric kool-aid acid test" by Tom Wolfe? it
should brings it back to life for you, a great book. He was on the
bus and he managed to take notes! We had a similar scene in England
in the 80's with some really heavy psychedelic bands, magic
mushrooms and free festivals every weekend, much fun.
