(Herman’s Hermits follow-up?)
This has just appeared on the Pompey Pop Facebook site under which I posted the message below. Anyone know any more. Does it look like a Birdcage poster? It was posted by a pal of mine (& JR), Ross Hannam who suggested it was at Kimbell’s
My Facebook Comment:
“This gig was on the complete Birdcage list that has circulated for years around Pompey but it never happened. I don’t remember anticipating it – and since I loved Cream, and went to the Birdcage that weekend I’m not sure about it. I reckon I’d have been very disappointed. Maybe it was a late cancellation – incidentally it wasn’t Kimbells either because the Birdcage moved to Eastney in late summer 1965. HOWEVER, Cream did play across the Harbour in Gosport in November 1966, and they did get to the Birdcage on Saturday 3 December 1966 (10/-) where – ironically – Ginger collapsed and the ‘Old Bill’ raided. I did see that and still have a diary with some of their (mostly bluesy) set written down. This doesn’t look to me like a typical 1966 Birdcage poster, but I can’t be sure”.
