After many years the information is finally coming in thick and fast, thanks to Al Bye and Lawrence Impey for the new pix .... and almost 40 years to the day , in late June 2009 , more new pics added courtesy of Mike Ware.... and 2012 , five new images courtesy of Mike Bird.

Stuart Godfrey recollects.
     I remember very clearly seeing Liverpool Scene at the Bath Festival in 1969 and they were BRILLIANT - even in the exalted company of Led Zeppelin, John Mayall, Fleetwood Mac, Roy Harper, The Nice (to name but a few) they really got the festival buzzing - Adrian Henri was an amazing front-man who very nearly wrecked the stage with some ill-advised leaps (he was a big guy). Less clearly I seem to recall they had a guitarist name of Andy Roberts??? who made some pretty strong solo albums.

      I did get to meet Adrian Henri and Roger McCough at a poetry reading in Hereford and they were really nice guys; Henri had this uncanny ability of balancing one full beer-mug on his belly while downing another. As a thin guy, I found this very impressive.
Ah, memories...
