A crackingly psychedelic Bank Holiday weekend fifty years ago with releases by Traffic, Mothers of Invention (Absolutely Free) , the Crazy World of Arthur Brown at UFO and a Barbecue 67 event in Lincolnshire with Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Pink Floyd, the Move, & Dantalian’s Chariot. Melody Maker ran a feature on the San Francisco/West Coast bands identifying “an air of rebellion, revolution, freedom and fun” with “drugs, mainly LSD and marijuana … an integral part of the scene”.
Meanwhile, more Flower Power. Mick has sent me this photo:
He says: “Another reunion gathering of three quarters of the Honky Tonk Band. Sadly Dave couldn’t make it. At?? the Havant Garden Centre! No that’s another story!”
