I Was There
I was at the 1970 Isle of Wight festival and I can tell you that Terry Reid was (IMHO) the best act on the whole weekend. He appeared on the Friday night which probably explains why he always seems to get ignored in retrospectives. I remember a fantastic performance and six (yes 6) encores. And these were proper encores, ones demanded by the audience, not preplanned ones that are actually part of the set. I have been digitising my vinyl collection and have just done River and Seed of Memory. Two fantastic albums, hopefully to appear on emusic sometime. Every plaudit you hear about Terry Reid is true. Download everything you get get by him, he is a unjustly forgotten gem.
