Again, so many happy memories of this performed live - around the same time as the Man/Audience show.

Did you know James Hastings played alto saxophone, clarinet and flute with Humphrey Lyttelton's eight-piece jazz band?

Yes.

It did not sell out so tickets were released very cheap. I could easily afford several bites of the 50th anniversary cherry.

Here's a tale: when I was sent to boarding school in Canterbury, my best friend was into punk, over which we bonded. We hated the Canterbury bands with a passion.

25 years later he did an about turn, having moved from London to Canterbury. We binged on the band's music, and took wives and girlfriends to see the band headline at the Marlowe Theatre at the Canterbury Festival.

An emotional evening!

At some point in our 41 year history I must have done!

I recall someone (me, most likely) making several ill-advised comments regarding the groupies on offer that evening - many in their advancing years...

We're listening to a prog rock album in a synchronised listen - no need to apologise for bad taste! :lol:
