I was there. It was my very first Winterland show.
I think the very next week I saw the Grateful Dead there too.
It's been a while.
The Yes performance was thrilling.
Charlie Starr, on the other hand, was pathetic. The crowd had absolutely no interest in him, and booed off the stage. It was sad. I felt sorry for him.
To answer one of the questions: yes, Bill Graham was the promoter. What an amazing guy!
I still occasionally walk by that corner. It's a slightly odd feeling.

Does anybody know if Bill Graham promoted this show?
[NOTE from Geoffrey Mason to Mike Parsons, June 12, 2022]: "Yes, Bill Graham did indeed promote this show. I was able to find the San Francisco Examiner newspaper ads above pushing the show."
also at the HOME of the Grateful Dead!
Where there music and Yes could open uo to the universe.
THIS ALSO WAS SOOOOOOOOOO MOVING !!!!!
What a beautiful moment in time.
The "Topo" tour @ Winterland in S.F. in 74 had a blind solo act named Charlie Starr opening. (about a 30 minute non-memorable set). A friend of mine contacted Jon Anderson on that tour and was doing a grad student report on metaphysical applications of music (or something like that) and Jon agreed to do an interview with him about that project. I do not have a copy of my friends report. the funny thing is, my friend was leaving the hotel on foot and a limo pulled up with Jon and Steve and maybe Chris headed for dinner. They invited him to join them and he was so shocked, he declined.
