Greek Theatre with Jack Johnson, Robert Walter's 20th Congress, Lake Trout
The Blind Boys of Alabama made a suprise appearance and sang backup on "I Want to be Ready", "Give a Man a Home" and "I Shall Not Walk Alone." Before "Ground on Down", Ben introduced his guitar and played a few riffs. He also told a story about being on Haight and Ashbury here he was playing guitar when these two folks walked by and said, "Man, you sound just like Ben Harper." He just didn't have the heart to tell them it was actually him.
