Thread Name: Klooks Kleek (blues club in West Hampstead)
Subject: Klooks Kleek
Going back through my late 60s memorabilia recently (it's what you do when you're getting REALLY old and grey), I came across my membership card for Klooks Kleek - the blues club held in the upstairs room at the Railway Tavern in West Hampstead. (And - no - I don't collect bus tickets...)

Which reminded me of a wonderful session there with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers - the line-up being JM, Mick Taylor (guitar), Jon Hiseman (drums), Tony Reeves (bass), Henry Lowther (trumpet) and Dick Heckstall-Smith (saxes). Taylor left shortly afterwards to join the Stones, and Hiseman and Reeve became founder members of Coliseum.

Any old Kleekians around?
