Blackbushe concert 1978 balloons

The open-air concert at Blackbushe attracted 200,000 people and featured Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Joan Armatrading, Graham Parker and the Rumour, and others. We set out in good time but ran into a huge traffic jam, and didn't reach the car park until 16:15, missing Graham Parker and the Rumour.

 

I noted that Eric Clapton was professional and impressive, Joan Armatrading sounded rather muted (like someone playing the record in the background), and Dylan finally roused the crowd to some show of enthusiasm.
