This extraordinary blues festival staged on an athletic field at the University of Michigan, Friday through Sunday August 1-3 in-between the moon landing and Woodstock, was almost lost to time--except to the 10,000 or so mostly white high school and college kids lucky enough to have the good fortune (and taste) to attend.
