MEMORY - PICTURE(S) - bootleg recording


MEMORY

dave bean - by email

I saw him about 5 times:
Monday 27 March '72 - London, Royal Albert Hall
Saturday 5 May '73 - Southampton, Students Union
Saturday 5 July '75 - Knebworth, Knebworth Park
MONDAY 1 DECEMBER '75 - PORTSMOUTH, GUILDHALL
Thursday 13 November '80 - Guildford, Civic Hall
but the Portsmouth show was probably the best, even though it was only about forty minutes. He turned up over an hour late and the audience was very pissed off. He walked on stage to loud boos and slow hand claps, but after a few words, less than a minute, he had the audience eating out of his hands. Hope these English phrases make sense. Anyway it was an absolutely brilliant show, just a shame it wasn't longer.

dave would like to remark:
The photos are not that great as Don did not believe in using too much light


BOOTLEG RECORDING

two songs from the show, dali's car and beatle bones 'n' smokin' stones, have been brought out on the bootleg magnetic hands, but they suffer from a bad sound quality
