just left school ... me, a pal and a tent ...
from Arthur Brown - who else can I remember on the bill ?
Davis Group / The Who / The Move / Louis Jordan / Geno Washington
& The Ram Jam Band / ...
was supposed to be the first appearance by Cream too. I must have
seen Gary Farr & The T Bones too - good Brighton boys.
site has an act listed as Louis Nelson - I thought it was
Louis Jordan (found reference to Jazz act call Louis Nelson online
and he died in the late 40s). At the festival the only Jazz act
that really stuck in my mind was one that marched onto the stage
from the back of the field and though the middle of the audience
- they were great. Years later when I met my school mate again
- he told me that was Louis Jordan! When Van Morrison said that
all he listened to was Louis Jordan - I'd gone straight out and
got an album ... Not knowing I'd seen him years earlier!
just a few years after this experience !!!
Another thing I remember - is people running on stage with the
score every time a goal was scored ........... as England won
the World Cup.
