September 4th 1971.


Jack Bruce Band, King Crimson,Roy Harper,Formerly Fat Harry.


 

  The last concert of the forth summer season.With Jack Bruce and Friends headlining and ably assisted by the most excellent King Crimson ,  there seems to have been plenty of people there to hear two great bands strut their stuif for free.

   Once again, lots of Blackhill artists on this bill . TheThird Ear Band did not show up on the day, so  Roy Harper became a last minute substitute .Photos of the crowd suggest there was a substantial turnout, possibly 70,000 or more.

The Hyde Park concert resident solo artiste- Roy Harper -the man for all seasons.
