PROFESSOR'S 1970s CONCERT NOTEBOOK

Tags: 

I kept a notebook recording all of the concerts that I attended in the 1970s. All of the information shown here (in the first section) is from my notebook, recorded at the time, so it should be fairly accurate. My notebook records only the month and year of the concert, so precise dates where shown are researched from the internet.

My notebook ends there. However, I do recall a number of later (1970s) concerts that I attended that are not shown in the notebook. The following information is therefore from memory, supplemented with information (dates and fuller list of artists) researched on the internet.
BAND * VENUE * DATE * RATING (OUT OF 5)* REMARKS
Cockney Rebel/Steve Harley * Hammersmith odeon (not The Clash's Hammersmith Palais), London * ca. 1975 * 5 *
Sailor * ? * ca. 1975 * 3 * Venue unremembered, but possibly supporting Cockney Rebel at Hammersmith Odeon.
Sparks * ? * ca. 1975 * 4 * Venue unremembered
Alan Price - when and where did I see Alan Price, and was it with Georgie Fame ? (but I do remember it, vaguely)

Pink Floyd at Knebworth House, Stevenage * 5th July 1975 * 4 * open-air one-day festival, audience estimated at 150,000
Captain Beefheart * Knebworth House, Stevenage * 5th July 1975
Steve Miller * Knebworth House, Stevenage * 5th July 1975
Roy Harper * Knebworth House, Stevenage * 5th July 1975
Linda Lewis * Knebworth House, Stevenage * 5th July 1975
Monty Python * Knebworth House, Stevenage * 5th July 1975

Reading Festival - 22nd - 24th August 1975
I'm fairly certain I went to a second festival at Reading, but I haven't got it recorded in my notebook. Upon checking the net and the bands appearing, I reckon it was probably 1975 because I have vague memories of seeing Yes, Thin Lizzy, Dr Feelgood, Mahavishnu Orchestra (with John McLaughlin), and Joan Armatrading.
Complete list, although I don't recall many of them, included: ALBERTO Y LOS TRIOS PARANIOS, JOAN ARMATRADING, BABE RUTH, CARAVAN, CLIMAX BLUES BAND, DR FEELGOOD, HAWKWIND, HEAVY METAL KIDS, JUDAS PRIEST, KOKOMO, KURSAAL FLYERS, MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA, ALAN STIVELL, WALLY, OZARK MOUNTAIN DAREDEVILS, LOU REED, SNAFU, SOFT MACHINE, STELLA, STRING DRIVEN THING, SUPERTRAMP, THIN LIZZY, ROBIN TROWER, U.F.O., WISHBONE ASH, YES, ZZEBRA.

Free Concerts - Harlow Town Park - 1975
Upon checking the net it seems that there were also some free concerts at Harlow Town Park by Thin Lizzy (9th July 1975), 10cc and The Bay City Rollers (dates unknown). I do recall seeing all three bands, but I had seen 10cc and Thin Lizzy before so my memory may be playing tricks on me after all this time. I definitely recall the Bay City Rollers playing 'Bye Bye Baby' and 'Requiem'.

The Who * Charlton Athletic Football Stadium, London * 31st May 1976 * 5 * -
Sensational Alex Harvey Band * Charlton Athletic Football Stadium, London * 31st May 1976
Little Feat. * Charlton Athletic Football Stadium, London * 31st May 1976
Outlaws * Charlton Athletic Football Stadium, London * 31st May 1976
Roger Chapman - Whitney Streetwalkers . * Charlton Athletic Football Stadium, London * 31st May 1976
My recollection is of atttending concerts at Charlton Football ground on THREE consecutive years (1974. 1975, and 1976), all three headlined by The Who, but I cannot find any record of the 1975 concert, so possibly my memory of this is faulty. The record seems to suggest that there were concerts in 1974 and 1976 only.

The Rolling Stones at Knebworth House, Stevenage * 21st August 1976 * 5 * open-air one-day festival, audience estimated at 150,000
Lynyrd Skynyrd * Knebworth House, Stevenage * 21st August 1976
10cc * Knebworth House, Stevenage * 21st August 1976 * 4 *
Todd Rundgren's Utopia * Knebworth House, Stevenage * 21st August 1976 * 4 *
Hot Tuna * Knebworth House, Stevenage * 21st August 1976
Don Harrison Band * Knebworth House, Stevenage * 21st August 1976

Queen at Hyde Park, London * 18-Sep-76 * 4 * free open-air concert, audience estimated at 150,000. &nbsp I've also got the DVD of this Queen concert.
Kiki Dee * Hyde Park, London * 18-Sep-76
Supercharge * Hyde Park, London * 18-Sep-76
Steve Hillage * Hyde Park, London * 18-Sep-76

CONCLUSION: I was a Listologist even in the 1970s.
After this, I attended no concerts for many years, until 2001.
See my other concert calendar &nbsp Professor's Concert Calendar &nbsp for all concerts from 2001.

MEMORIES: September 1971. Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come, at the Birdcage nightclub in Harlow, Essex. I went to the concert with my leg in plaster because I had a broken leg. We arrived very early, and were the first in the queue. The roadies then arrived and carried their equipment in relay up the stairs (the club was above some shops in the centre of town), where we were queueing at the bottom of the stairs. One of the roadies stopped and spoke to me commenting on my leg. It transpired later that it was Arthur Brown himself that had spoken to me, the band obviously roadying for themselves.
This concert would have been one of the first ever where they used their infamous electronic drum machine.

Arthur Brown included his 1960s hit 'Fire', wearing a helmet set aflame. Fabulously theatrical show, especially for the time. I bought their 1971 vinyl album 'Journey', an electronic masterpiece which is one of my all-time favourite albums to this day and I now have on CD. I saw them four times in total.

The date was 16th September 1971.
See video from the era

MEMORIES: Weeley "Festival of Progressive Music", Essex, 1971. Non-stop 24-hour music for two and a half days, with no rest breaks. I lost all my money the first day so I had to scrounge from my pal to eat. We lived on burgers for three days. There wasn't much else to eat. The facilities in 1971 were awful.

Some of the audience set up tents and camped out in the adjoining campsites, but we took our sleeping bags into the arena and stayed there throughout, sleeping as little as possibble. The crowd photos (see the link) show everyone in the arena completely wrecked, lying on the ground in sleeping bags. Hells angels caused some trouble at the festival, but the police eventually ejected them. The schedule quickly started to overrun from the early acts, and the (unscheduled) intervals between acts seemd endless.

We were driven there and collected by my dad. I was 15.

An amazing thing about me going to the Weeley festival, for a whole weekend of non-stop music, is that with the exception of two concerts I had never been to a live music concert before then.
Also 'we lived on burgers for three days', McDonalds didn't yet exist in the UK in 1971, so the only options were rather awful burger or hot dog stalls.

MEMORIES: Weeley, 1971. Musical Highlights:
EDGAR BROUGHTON BAND: One of the earliest acts on the bill, I had never heard of them before. They are a great live band and crowd poleaser, and had the audience on theiir feet with their anthemic chant 'Out Demons Out', which ends with no music but everyone chanting the title for a full five minutes or more. A hippy peace and love band, tor two or three years afterwards they were my favourites. I bought all of their early albums, and now have their first album on CD. I saw them live five times in total, including their recent 2006 reunion tour.

MEMORIES: Weeley, 1971. Musical Highlights:
STATUS QUO: Another great live band, in their early days they could really rock the place. Again I saw them a few times live and bought all their early albums.

MEMORIES: Weeley, 1971. Musical Highlights:
BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST. and QUINTESSENCE.
Both unexpectedly fantastic live performers. BJH played with a small orchestra, and Quintessence were a Jesus band, but created a great live atmosphere.

I was browsing through the Weeley website, and it transpires that Barclay James Harvest had a 36-piece orchestra playing with them.

MEMORIES: November 1971 (20th or 21st). Led Zeppelin.
Unforgettable concert at the massive indoor arena - the Wembley Empire Pool in London. LZ IV was released just a few eeks earlier on on November 8th, so the new songs was as yet unheard (by me). Stand out tracks at the time, even before they became classics, were 'Black Dog' and 'Stairway To Heaven'. 'Whole Lotta Love' came complete with the scream. The accoustic section was unexpected (by me), and they were joined on stage by Sandy Denny for 'The Battle of Evermore'.

Support act were stablemates, Stone The Crows, with Maggie Bell and guitarist Les Harvey who later died when electrocuted on stage.

MEMORIES: Apr-1972. Chicken Shack / Stan Webb at Harlow Technical College.
One of the best concerts ever, This was the first time that I saw Stan Webb and he completely blew me away. At the time I thought he was better than Hendrix. Chicken Shack then was a three-piece band led by Stan Webb on guitar and vocals. I had heard of them before because they had a 7" single that charted a couple of years earlier ("I'd Rather Go Blind"), but then they had Christine Perfect on vocals, who later became Christine McVie and joined Fleetwood Mac. 'Stan, the man' is one of the most brilliantly fluid blues guitarists you are ever likley to hear. I bought their 1972 album Imagination Lady which remains one of my all-time favourites to this day. I have seen them six times in total (so far), and it was Stan Webb that brought me back to watching live music after a twenty-five year hiatus.

This list and these descriptions are awesome... if it isn't impolitic: Why the decades long break?

I especially like the little Edward Broughton Band anecdote. I love growing up with a musician/band taking me through phases of life. Remembering them before the boyfriend joined the band, when they got married, after the divorce, the second husband, the baby... that's it (so far.)

There's nothing like seeing a band live. I've seen Richard Thompson several times and I envy you for seeing him in his cheek of tan days. I also love playing the "I saw them when..." game and all of the associated name-dropping.

Isn't it great/neat to see an act over/after many years?

...unless you suddenly realize that they suck.

Why the decades long break?
I was off-world.

Seriously though, mid seventies I began to lose interest in music because it was becoming rather dull, and then I got married, and whilst my wife would accompany me to plays at the theatre and to the cinema but not to live concerts. Curiously, it was of course the very same dullness of the music scene that inspired punk-rock. I considered a few times travelling into London to see some of my favourites, like The Clash, the Sex Pistols, the Only Ones, Stiff Little Fingers, Buzzcocks and Magazine, but never did go. My biggest regret was never seeing live any of the great punk/post-punk/ new-wave bands at their peak, when I had such a fantastic (and easy) opportunity to do so, living relatively near to London. I will never forgive myself for that. I did get to see the Buzzcocks and Stiff Little Fingers during the last two years, and I was tempted to go along to see the 2007 reunion tour of the Only Ones.
More memories to follow.

MEMORIES: March 1973. Kings Cross cinema, London.
For two consecutive weeks we went down to London for the Kings Cross cinema all-nighters, starting at midnight and ending around 5 or 6 am. I went with John and met up with Kim in London who dragged us along. Kim was a new lodger at my grandmother's house, who lived near the Rainbow theatre at Finsbury Park. The main objective for Kim it seemed was acid and speed, but the music and the venue/atmosphere were terrific. We saw Chicken Shack, the Pink Fairies and Sassafras amongst others. After the concerts we wandered around the streets of central London for a few hours waiting for the underground train system (the 'tube') to begin so that we could get back home for some sleep.

I am now working just three hundred yards around the corner from the Kings Cross cinema - it's still there.

MEMORIES: 1973-74. Harlow Town Park - free concerts.
Harlow was a 'new town' with a young population. In 1973 some chap at the local council decided to organise some free music concerts in the town park for the younger generation. Like many towns there would be free brass band on each Sunday at the bandstand in the town park, but that did not cater very well for the real personality of the population. Every second Sunday for two years throughout the summer we were treated to a series of free open-air concerts (shouldn't all local authorities cater similarly to their residents?), including: Fairport Convention, Hawkwind, Judas Priest, Mungo Jerry, Atomic Rooster, Chicken Shack/Stan Webb, Brinsley Schwarz, Pink Fairies, and Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come amongst others. I usually went with my long-term girlfriend, Soz. I'm certain that I have some photographs in my loft which I will retrieve and post somewhere.

Check this out.
Curiously Hawkwind appeared twice in 1973 and 1974, the first I rated a five-star performance but the second I rated one-star, but I did not record (or recall) the reason for the difference. This website tells me that it was due to the weather.
I've now emailed them with my notes.
I've also updated my dates.

This website also suggests that there were free concerts at Harlow town park by Thin Lizzy (9th July 1975), 10cc and The Bay City Rollers, so I have added them above.

Here's a few additional links re the Weeley festival:

That was the spirit that brought you there even with a broken leg. but the struggle ended when you attended concert with electronic drum machine. Flutamide cipla

The work done by you is really appreciative. You comprehensively shared all the information of events. The Tudor Lodge * Weeley Festival of Progressive "Music * 27-29-Aug. 1971 * 1 *" are great legendary music. seo social media

Dear Professor, with regard to forgotten venues, I think you may find that Stackridge, Brinzley Swartz, Arthur Browns Kingdome Come and Sandy Denny all performed on the same bill at Harlow Sportcentre..Jolly good gig it was too hope this helps your list.
