Washington Post: Rolling Stones Altamont concert footage found in Library of Congress archives

Washington Post: Rolling Stones Altamont concert footage found in Library of Congress archives. “When Library of Congress film expert Mike Mashon heard about newly found reels of Rolling Stones concert footage, he thought they were copies from a show the band did in London in 1969…. The footage was not from the London concert that July. It was from the notorious show five months later at the Altamont Speedway near San Francisco, where one fan was killed, three others died and, many believe, the social revolution of the 1960s began its end.”
