It seems odd that thanks to Dave Mussell, I’ve only just learned to spell Procol, and interesting that there is a Birdcage flyer advertising Procol Harun to appear this weekend (Saturday 15) – apparently their name should have been Harun but it was misspelled somewhere and so became forever Harum.
Whatever, as with John Mayall the previous Saturday, they didn’t turn up, so Graham Bond played. Obviously this was past his classic Organisation quartet, I didn’t go and I’ve no idea who played with him.
Meanwhile in London there was the opening of a lengthy ‘Congress on the Dialectics of Liberation’ at the Roundhouse – It was a major counterculture event and there is much more about it at http://www.dialecticsofliberation.com/
One person attending was beat poet Allen Ginsberg who is shown below at a ‘Legalise Pot’ Rally in Hyde Park on Sunday 16 July 1967. You probably know that fifty years later, some people are still waiting – in the UK at least.
