Just picked up on the site...an
amazing performance by Tim at an unearthly hour. We were aware of Tim as a 60s
folk artist, so it came asa big suprise when Tim arrived with this eletric band
to play some white hot sexed-up soul music!! Certainly blew most of us away...I
can remember the rest of the acts were pale in comparison. About 5 years ago
I finally picked up a boot of the gig...not a bad recording, but to be there was the thing!

There is some 8mm footage of part of Tim's set but unfortunately it has no sound and is also of very variable quality. I've included a few stills here , these are the best images I could get from around 10 minutes of footage. Thanks to Geoff Clout for the chance to view the footage.
