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...
