September 20th 1969.

Soft Machine, The Deviants, Eclection ,Al Stewart. Quintessence, Edgar Broughton Band.

    This is the concert from 1969 that has been sidelined , as it was overshadowed by its gi-normous predecessors in June and July of the same year .Until recently we had very little information regarding what went on at this show, but now some good good video sources recorded by overseas TV have recently surfaced as well as a number of images of Eclections set , all are featured here.


The event was, as usual (since the Stones had adopted them as a security force), policed by various biker groups. The ones seen here do not appear to be Hells Angels as their patches indicate otherwise.The first official chapter of the Hells Angels in the UK was established in July 30th 1969, so anyone sporting colours before that was not an offical Angel.
