The Eagles headlined the show and were supported by Mountain and a New Hampshire group, John Perrault & Friends. The show was produced for the UMP-G (University of Maine Portland-Gorham) Student Action Board.

The Eagles were paid $5,000 for their appearance. Evidently, Leslie West and Felix Pappalardi of Mountain were less than thrilled to be booked as an opening act. Who can blame them? They played Woodstock, man.
*A note about the date. The student paper says “last Sunday night’s concert.” Since the paper was published on Tuesday, December 11th, the last Sunday would seemingly have been the 9th. But Mountain played SUNY Plattsburgh that evening, so I used the previous Sunday, which seems to fit for both bands, who were touring the northeast at that time.
