Alex Cooley Presents: Time Has Come Today

Before there was Woodstock, before there was Altamont, there was the First Atlanta International Pop Festival. Held at the Middle Georgia Raceway in Byron over the July 4 weekend in 1969, the festival lineup featured some of the biggest names in rock and popular music, from Janis Joplin and Joe Cocker to Johnny Winter and Canned Heat. Concert producer Alex Cooley followed up with a second festival the following year.
