I was there in my granddad vest and Dunlop Green Flash plimsoles, cool or what. I sat right at the front with my feet resting on the stage, Jimmy Page standing in front of me playing his nuts off and sweating profusely. How excited was I as his sweat dropped from his head onto my Dunlops! This was a Monday night, as were most Cooks Ferry gigs at the time, and the noise created was unbelieveable, my ears didn't stop ringing until Thursday morning. I remember when coming home from the gig and the only thing going through my head, (above the ringing!) was Communication Breakdown..dadadadadadadada daaaadada. Blinding and only 16.
very fond memories indeed.

It was so bloody cold. I remember JP wearing an extremely long, narrow and tailored brown tweedy overcoat when he arrived. I don't remember him taking it off when he was playing - but memory's probably at fault here.

What I am certain of is that there were precious few of us punters present. I'm happy I took an evening off from A-level revision to gp down there.

I was there, and it was LOUD!
People were walking out because they couldn't stand it.
And it cost 37.5p to get in!
Better than £700 now.

I caught the train home to Barking on a Thursday after buying the Melody Maker at Fenchurh Street. walked into Guy Norris records opposite Barking station and in the new releases box was Led Zep I. Listened to it on cans and bought it. Played it round my friends house and saw in the Melody Maker they were at the Cooks Ferry, I think the following night. Never heard of them, but they were bloody great. I thought the singer won't reach those notes live, but he did. Remember JP in his long coat, I don't think he took it off. Also remember JP playing the guitar with a cello bow and Whip. They played if I remember rightly in some sort of hall at the back of the pub. I also seem to remember it cost 25p (5 bob) to get in. Saw them several times after but only at big venues, Albert Hall, Shepton Mallet, Ally Pally and Wembley, might be more can't remember, stoned most of this period. What a great time.
