Hyde Park 74 trivia

Audience recording of Roy Harper's performance exists

featuring " The Game "

40 minutes with David Gilmour and John Paul Jones

good to very good quality

Roger McGuinn performed using a plexiglass guitar that had lights in it.

Re Julie Felix

Glinting and pristine in her white shirt and blue jeans, Julie Felix adequately performed her Hampstead liberalism despite valiant attempts by a slightly somnambulistic looking Ollie Halsall to elevate the set into something more concrete than a succession of pleasant songs. She smiled more that anyone who was on stage that day and quite a lot of people seemed to enjoy her.
