London 1970-71

Back in 1970,I was living and working in Stroud,Gloucestershire and we used to go into London on the train for our music fix.There were amazing shows all over the place in those days and we seemed to go to many areas of the city.Some of the more memorable shows were at the Roundhouse in Chalk Farm and Royal Albert Hall.At the Roundhouse,we indulged in a little dosage before experiencing John Cale and Nico opening for Pink Floyd.At Royal Albert Hall we caught an amazing show by the Band at their prime as well as Mott the Hoople at a later date.We used to go to a club called Cousins in Soho on Wardour St.to see folk music like John Martyn.Other singer-songwriter shows were at another Royal Concert venue with James Taylor and Gordon Lightfoot.Once we went way up to Islington to see Elton John in a club setting.There was a huge outdoor concert at the Crystal Gardens with the Faces and Yes opening for Pink Floyd with their 360%speaker placement.
