Thread Name: Klooks Kleek (blues club in West Hampstead)
Subject: R E: Klooks Kleek
I'm getting quite enthused by this now - a real nostalgia trip! I've been into my scrapbooks!
It would have been the week commencing 16th October when I made my exciting trip to London. Friday 21st saw me at the Cream gig I referred to above - it was a club called 'Bluesville' at the Manor House, now a Costcutter store! That same week, quite apart from the Klooks gig, I was at the Nags Head in Battersea, (demolished now) which used to have a blues club called 'Kilroys' where Savoy Brown (Kim Simmonds - impressive guitar wiz) had a Wednesday residency and a Folk Club on another night - saw Johnny Silvo there and went to Cecil Sharp House another night to see Shirley Collins, Carthy & Swarb, and I think also Anne Briggs and Bob Davenport were on the same bill - all for 12/6d which I recall thinking was a bit pricey!!!!

Not a bad week, 5 gigs in 7 days. What was I doing for the other two?!
Eclectic tastes too, for a young mod!

No longer have my Klooks membership card, which I remember as having quite professional graphics - would love to see a photo or scan or whatever, if anyone could facilitate this?
