    The Atlantic City Pop Festival was held just a few weeks before Woodstock in 1969.
    Acts at the pop festival included The Byrds, Chicago, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Procol Harem, Johnny Winter, Three Dog Night, acts from the worlds of jazz (Buddy Rich, Hugh Masekela), soul (Booker T. and the MG’s) and blues (B.B. King), as well as Little Richard, Joe Cocker and Santana (mistakenly introduced as the Santa Ana Blues Band) Canned Heat and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, The Sir Douglas Quintet, Tim Buckley, Buddy Miles, The Chambers Brothers, Aum, Lighthouse, American Dream, Tracy Nelson and Mother Earth and Iron Butterfly, Joni Mitchell, who famously skipped the Upstate New York gig, although she probably wished she’d passed on this one too: After singing a few tunes, Mitchell complained that no one was listening to her and walked offstage in tears, never to return. Crosby, Stills & Nash were booked but canceled, Johnny Winter was advertised to play, but never made it. Ditto for the Moody Blues. Blues singer Mississippi Fred McDowell
