** I was told this
is the song title. As do not have the album this song is on, I cannot
verify this. However, it really just sounds like a medley of Gong material,
specifically Master Builder and A Sprinkling Of Clouds at the very end.

Audience recording. 38 mins
Fairly clear vocals
but other instruments are muffled. The beginning of No Solutions is
missing. Programme suffers from a false start and then, according
to a press review, during the second attempt the generator packed
up for an hour.
"Actually there was nothing wrong with
the generator at all. We just wanted to check our make-up",
says John Perry.
Perrett comes on stage to say " Hello again.
This is fun innit?". You can't see us but......Before we were
so rudely interrupted, this is called Programme".
The band play on,
apparently in darkness as the generator was on half power, although
a cheer just before the end of Programme indicates that the lights
have come back on.
The tape suddenly stops during Lovers Of Today due to a second PA
breakdown and after a brief pause a muffled drum solo can be heard.
According to the review, Mike Kellie carried on playing despite this
second loss of power. Finally, the end of Peter And The Pets is cut
Turner's mob, apparently their set was filmed by the BBC - and
as you can see in this shot, there is a camera in action.

unlikely this was recorded as the set would have probably emerged
by now on lists .
CD has been released featuring selections of songs from Glastonbury
1979 and 81 . Unfortunately any info I have found so far does
not indicate which songs are from which festival.
: Harry Williamson (vocals, guitars); Gilli Smyth (vocals); Didier
Malherbe (flute, saxophone).- Photos we have indicate a larger
lineup than this - keyboard and conga players should be included.
