It problably looked something like this;
JA played its third ever show at the Matrix, 22nd September 1965.Lightning Hopkins opened, it was a Wednesday.
They recorded 'Rejoyce', at RCA Studio A in Hollywood, for After Bathing At Baxters, on the 22nd September 1967.It was a Friday.
Theres a possibility they returned to the U.S from the first European tour around this time in 1968.There was a gap between their last show in Europe on the 20th and their return appearance in the U.S on the 28th, which was playing Ed Sullivan.
And that was, On This Day in Airplane History
