Bluesology 1968 : Chateau Impney .

The Aftermath

A film crew followed Fleetwood Mac to the festival and filmed them and Joe Cocker onstage, so we now have an excellent number of images of the festival at long last thanks to DVideo.

Fleetwood Mac members depart after delivering a storming set , Mick Fleetwood packs his balls and goes home , whereas Peter settles for carrying his guitar.

The Band trudge off into the night

Leaving the audience wanting more.....

And more.....

Next day the site iself in front of the stage is something of a mess

Seats at festivals are not a good idea.......

Meanwhile back in his luxery penthouse flat superstar bon vivant Jeremy Spencer unwinds after the gig with wife, babe and a nice strong hot cup of tea .....
