Total Experience
This was the first time I had been away from my home town without an adult. I was 16 and I had hardly been out of the house. I learned more in that weekend than the previous 16 years. I hadn't seen anyone drunk before, for example.
My friend and I got a lift and then took a bus to the festival site.
First act was the inimitable Screaming Lord Sutch. He had girl's dressed in school uniform, stockings and suspenders. He would be arrested now.
Next up was Family. Roger Chapman put up his usual strong performance.
I saw Free, Grateful Dead, Colosseum, Black Sabbath ,Ginger Bakers Airforce and various other acts that I don't now recall. This was the first large show that Black Sabbath had played and they admitted to being terrified. They had come a long way from playing the local youth club. I wonder what happened to them?
Biggest hit of the weekend was, without a doubt, Mungo Jerry. They just had to be brought back for a second performance.
An excellent experience that set me up for life as a music fan and concert goer. All for thirty bob or £1.50.
