Same reason people climb mountains...'cause they can! Doesn't mean it's a good idea...  ;D
What a PITA that (full size)system would have been for setup. No wonder it only lasted a year.

I think they only did 34 or 36 shows with it.

Strange how few shows, yet it is probably the most famous sound system.

At the Watkins Glen festival, they split it up into a standard PA so other bands could use it.  But they had multiple delays to get the sound to the back. 

Scott (Abrahamson):
I saw them at the Iowa Jam June of 74. They had problems with the system the first set and had no vocals out front. They got it sorted out and the rest of the show sounded great.  I had never seen so much gear in one place before.
