4th Aug 1979 memories

Ahh what memories! went with 3 mates & remember we were stoked weeks before the gig, discussing plans to get there ect on the banks of a local river around a few spliffs, we went by train to victoria station then coach to stevenage.

Hit the town centre as soon as we arrived, buying chow, smokes & booze then, picked a spot to bed down, crowds started to really swell and the vibe was unforgetable, really mellow & good, we went to a nearby wood & grabbed some branches, sticks ect & had a fire going & scored some rocky, remember some dudes from the US coming over with these huge demijohns of moonshine whisky that they shared for a few spliffs and as the night fell, there were bonfires blazing everywhere.

Remember all piling down to the park early, hoping to get a good spot. I cant recall much of support bands, Chas & dave, fairport, Rundgren bits & pieces but, one abiding memory is Zep kicking off, it was pitch black & I suddenly could see the shadow of the twin neck gibson appear on the stage backdrop and then BLAM! Song remains started, having recently got hold of white towers DVD release of the concert, I was able to relive the moment as it was captured almost exactly as I remember it.

A truly magical few days and ones I will never forget.
