Subject: RE: Klooks Kleek
I thought that that particular Mayall line-up - while it lasted - was excellent. I saw one of their later gigs, just before John disbanded them, at the old Marquee in Wardrour Street. Good - but not as good as the KK session. I saw Cream around '66 at the Central Pier, Morecambe. Stood right at the front of the stage, with a purple backlight shining through Clapton's afro hair style! He played Gibsons in those days, and there were several SGs and Les Pauls painted in "psychedelic" colours standing on the stage behind him. The set ended with a huge drum solo from Baker, who was then carried offstage by two roadies. Laugh? I thought I'd never stop.
