He does get a bit tiresome, doesn't he? All these gnomic pronouncements...
Wasn't too sure about some of the "blues" acts on the BBC programme, but it was OK. Did you spot the stunning guitarist playing behind John Baldry - absolutely superb. I remember seeing LJB in Leeds in 1964 at a college dance. He had a similarly stunning (but different) guitarist backing him then, and the whole performance was electric.
It was a bit disconcerting to see him hanging around the gents' toilets in the interval but, hey-ho, that's showbiz for you.
