Oz Last Days
For what it's worth, this event was actually titled 'Oz Last Days', and lasted for five days, not three (Aug 29 to Sept 2, 1973). The double album was also going to be titled Oz Last Days (see the pre-release flyer here: http://www.yk.rim.or.jp/~ubud/rg/rf7334b.html

The announced line-up for each of the days was:
8/29 Yoninbayashi, Anzen Band, Zuno Keisatsu
8/30 Creation, Carmen Maki & Oz, Taj Mahal Travellers
8/31 Lazy Kim Blues Band, Westroad Blues Band, Agora
9/1 Gypsy Blood, Acid Seven, Makoto Kubota
9/2 Rallizes, Masato Minami, Oz Golden Boys

Oh yes, the original album credits Acid Seven, not the Acid Seven Group. And Masato Minami Group, rather than just Masato Minami.
