It was very much a London oriented show and was later replaced by the South Bank Show.
A modern day offering from the Philippines
This the one?
You are fortunate living in the south. Shows in London are easy to get to.
I think that is it. It would have been nice to see that. We've done a few shows, although mainly gigs, which often involved trips up north.
This was quite a good show I attended back in 1970.
My actual 'flyer' and ticket stub...
For sure. A lot of top names there....
Tickets for 50 pence too! Is that 50p or was it pre decimal? 50 shillings?
The only act on that list I ever saw was Santana who played with the Eagles in about 75. Hotel California.
I was playing some Jefferson Starship stuff earlier.
That ticket might be worth a few bob now. Have you taken it to Floggit?
It was 50 shillings (£2.50) for the weekend .... Sat/Sunday, which is what I bought. (Plus my £3 return train fare, from York to Bath. )
Santana for me, were one of the three best performers there. Magnificent. Sheer class. I have some of their albums to this day, which I regularly play, both here and in the Phils... where of course they enjoy a lot of the 'Latin' influenced stuff.
Oh, and Donovan, who you may have heard of... just turned up and played for an hour, for free. Superb .
I paid over £130 for a 4 day Folk Festival last year but it was worth it, but I remember the era when gigs were a few quid, the real price has increased by at least 300% I reckon.
Your Bath festival had a hell of a line up!
Yeah. Definitely remember Donovan, another very much of the era.
