1967

1967

This year is incomplete. I’ve been relying on The Northern Scott for listings of Albert Bonici‘s events but they missed out all the Ballerina gigs until May 1967. Since then, I’ve discovered the Nairnshire Telegraph which did list everything. The first part of 1967 will be up as soon as possible. Anyway, until then, enjoy what’s here.

May 05 The Alan Price Set plus The T-Set. The clip above comes from the German TV show “Beat Club” and features Alan Price performing “Simon Smith And His Amazing Dancing Bear”.

July 07 Cream plus Newton’s Theory with its Go-Go Girls. The gig was cancelled when the van carrying the band’s equipment failed to turn up.


July 10 Cream return to play their concert. The rare footage above is from the Paris Pop Festival staged last month, the track is “We’re Going Wrong” and shows the band at the peak of their career.


July 21 Pink Floyd. “See Emily Play” was climbing the charts and here the band are miming to it on a Belgian TV show.
July 28 Gino Washington and The Ram Jam Band plus The Copy Cats

August 18 The Small Faces – concert cancelled.
August 31 Zoot Money and his new group Dantalion’s Chariot plus The T-Set

December 08 The Troggs plus The Throb. Here are the Troggs with their original version of “Love Is All Around” which got to number 5 in October. The promo film is typically surreal for the time but gives great glimpses of the band on stage and in transit to gigs.


December 15 Symon Dupree. Ok, you and I both know that it should be Simon Dupree but the adverts carry a “y”. Here he is with The Big Sound performing “Kites” which hit the top ten last month. The video’s a bit jumpy but it does show exactly how the band were on stage.
