NEW Larger Bath and Lincoln Festivals 1969-70-71 Commemorative Set

 

THE BATH FESTIVALS OF BLUES 1969-70 AND THE LINCOLN FOLK FESTIVAL 1971

NEW AUGMENTED SET


 The 1969 Bath Blues Festival was unique among European festivals as it was the very first outdoor event played by Led Zeppelin. Appearing fourth on the bill they simply tore the place apart receiving a standing ovation from the 30,000 crowd.

The complete programme included Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall, Ten Year's After, Led Zeppelin, Nice, Chicken Shack, John Hiseman's Colosseum, Blodwyn Pig, Keef Hartley, Group Therapy, Liverpool Scene, Taste featuring Rory Gallagher, Champion Jack Dupree, Savoy Brown, Clouds, Principal Edward's Magic Theatre, Babylon, Deep Blues Band, Just Before Dawn and D.J. John Peel.

The 1970 programme was probably the best ever seen in the UK. Jimmy Page appeared dressed as a country yokel and the fans loved it. The Moody Blues were rained off but The Byrds made their UK reputation by going on instead, playing an acoustic set on a rather wet evening to ecstatic applause.

Pink Floyd appeared late on Saturday night and gave their world premier of Atom Hart Mother. John Mayall assembled a hand picked band especially for the festival, which included Pete Green from the original Fleetwood Mac.

The complete programme included Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd,Jefferson Airplane, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention,John Mayall's Blues Breakers, The Byrds,Canned Heat, Dr John, Steppenwolf, Santana,Johnny Winter, Country Joe, It's a Beautiful Day, Flock, Hot Tuna, The Moody Blues, Fairport Convention and Maynard Ferguson's Big Band

The 1971 Lincoln Festival featured James Taylor, The Byrds, Tom Paxton, Buffy St Marie, Sonny Terry & Brownie Mcghee, Tim Hardin, Pentangle, The Incredible String Band, Sandy Denny, Steeleye Span, Ralph Mctell, Dave Swarbrick and Martin Carthy and Dion.

The Byrds were booked to play an acoustic set at Lincoln, because of the fantastic way they went down playing acoustic at the previous year's Bath Festival. However, they again stole the show by being the only band at Lincoln to play an electric set.
