On this day (The Last Time)

Leave a comment

50 years ago – Saturday 29 July 1967 – Denny Laine finally brought his new Electric String Band to the Birdcage (5/-) and I was there for what would turn out to be my last visit to that truly seminal venue (the reasons are explained in the book). There were just four Saturday nights to come.

PS  Many thanks to DJ Pete who sent the poster. I’d forgotten it was an all-nighter.
