Recording information

There's a recording of this concert.


There were 5.000 people in the audience. There was an A&M after show party at the Chelsea Hotel in Knightsbridge - almost everybody ended up in the swimming pool. UK papers printed reviews of a Tooting Bec Common concert, not everyone mentioned which of the two concerts was reviewed...

The two London concerts were initially planned to take place at the Kennington Oval Cricket Ground, but they feared that the ground might be damaged.
