The Infamous GONG paper plate promotion

Hello
I have one of the paper plates thrown into the crowd at the Hyde Park Free Concert 29 July 1974. It is an advert ( ! ) for Gong. If I remember right they were thrown into the crowd before Gong came on.

cheers

An excerpt from an interview with Pierre Moerlen has this to say about Hyde park

Q:
Which concert, out of all the concerts in which you have performed, was the most fulfilling... (which one) did you enjoy most ?
Pierre:
There was a great one in Hyde Park... in '73, or '74. It was the old Gong line-up. I have an extraordinary memory of it.
Q:
Was it a big occasion?
Pierre:
Yes, it was very big. There were many people there...
Q:
Was it a nice day?
Pierre:
Oh yes, great day, sun... we came on stage and started playing - it was just magic, fantastic. Everybody played really well, the public were really with us. This one and Knebworth, but Knebworth... I don't know. I think I would say Hyde Park - that's the one which came to me straight away.
