Remastered RARE footage of the Belle Isle Love-In 1967 w/ John Sinclair

A thousand thank you's to Margaret Krammer and Wayne, and to William Olivas, all who made this available.

"A secret look into the early MC5 at the infamous Belle Isle Love-In!
"This happened a lot when we played at big, highly charged public events," recalls Wayne Kramer, noting the notorious Belle Isle police riot of April 30, 1967, a free concert that Detroit media cast as "Love-In Turns to Hate".
The MC5's original photographer and first tour manager Emil Bacilla shot this rare footage of the band on Wayne Kramer's 19th birthday, April 30th, 1967.
With commentary recorded in 2004 by Wayne Kramer, Dennis "Machine Gun" Thompson , and Michael Davis.
Footage remastered by Margaret Saadi Kramer and William Olivas, 2019.
