The American acts, particularly those on Motown, were always most memorable for their well-drilled professionalism and tight playing of the backing musicians, irrespective of the fact that the place was tiny when compared with most of their venues back in the States and elsewhere.
    Blimey Otis, some proper legends there. Some of those I could only wish to see in my wildest dreams.

    That was the '60s for you though Rocka. Live music seemed more accessable and certainly more affordable (seeing Hendrix play at the Beachcomber in 1967, for what was then a few shillings was the musical highlight of the decade for me, and also sums up accessability).

    Then again, those British acts such The Who, Kinks and Small Faces had to constantly travel up and down the country to make a name for themselves before backing it up with hit records. Whilst the black American artists were trying get a foothold into the British and European markets and so would play all types of venues.

    Absolutely fantastic.

    If I had a time machine, I would love to go back to early 1950s America. I love the black Rhythm and blues scene and especially the Doo-wop singers on the street corners of New York.

    I have been fortunate to see some of the original line ups of the Cleftones and the Capris (although they were no spring chickens).

    It wasn't known as a live music venue, and so it's surreal to think that the Wailers played there.
    My mam nearly lived in there as a youngster.

    I am surprised that you guys don't know about the Bob Marley concert it is quite famous. 27th April 1973 and was their first concert of their very first UK tour and is regarded as the first Bob Marley and the Wailers first ever concert.
    I didn't know and I would have been 18 on that very day.

    I had a lot of mates in Balloon Woods and that was Trojan town!
    I didn't go to the concert but I knew a lot who did, Marley was already well known in those circles because of his work with the Upsetters.

    You must be the same age as my big brother, I am a few years younger by the time I hit the town that site was the Eight Till Late with all of the connotations that carries with it!

    As a 14/15 year old in the late sixties I could blag my way into the Palais on a Monday night which was their live music night, I remember seeing The Equals, The Foundations and Amen Corner there on a Monday night. Maybe not the heavy weights at the Dungeon but solid bands in their time. Once 1970 came along the live venue of choice was always the Boat Club and (believe it or not)the Albert Hall. For local bands the back bar of the Imperial and the Stork Club in Hucknall with a honorable mention for the Hearty Good Fellow.

    I'm 71 AR. The Albert Hall was a prime venue for rock acts in the city during the '60s/early-70s. The bands I saw there that immediately spring to mind are The Stones, Ten Years After, Stone The Crows, Mott The Hoople and Curved Air. I also recall seeing Tyrannosaurus Rex with Marc Bolan and Steve Peregrin-Took there, before Bolan went electric and became a big star.

    The three bands you recall from the Palais were top-drawer live acts at that time.

    My big brother is 72 so you would have been on the scene about the same time so you are 7 or so years in front of me. The Curved Air concert was when Sabbath were the main act if it was the same night as I saw them. Sabbath weren't at their best that night and Curved stole the show and I think I fell in love with Sonia Christina!
    I was at the Mark Bolan concert as well, I think Procol Harem were the support act and I remember their rendition of Homburg that night was sublime (I had forgotten what a great song that is). I remember seeing Jethro Tull there as well I think they were supporting the Groundhogs.
    Ten Years After I actually saw at the Palais on 27th January 1972 (that date is significant to me for other reasons!) at a concert organised by the Trent Poly SU.
    Trent Poly used to get some decent bands on as well in the old refectory, I remember seeing Slade there, also Wizard. About that time as well I remember seeing Atomic Rooster at Clarendon College.
    Blimey it's all coming back!

    The Albert Hall still has occasional select concerts, I most recently saw Donovan deliver an excellent performance there a couple of years ago.

    To echo your memories of Trent Poly, memorable gigs that immediately spring to mind are seeing Cream and The Faces there, and also seeing The Who perform Tommy in the main hall in the Portland Building at Nottingham University. Canned Heat, The Small Faces with The Herd and (again) The Faces, all at The Sherwood Rooms. The Who (yet again) at The Theatre Royal followed, a few weeks later (December '67) by the now-legendary line-up of The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd, The Move, Amen Corner and The Nice.

    I remember the Faces concert at the Sherwood Rooms, they were completely ratted. We must have been at the same concert on several occasions!

    My brother saw Hendrix at the Theatre Royal which I guess would have been '68 he also got to see the Beatles at the Odeon............the stuff I missed out on! But I also got to see a lot of great bands!

    I did see the Who perform Tommy later in '72 at the Rainbow in Finsbury Park.

    Dawn Trader. I’ve got an album of theirs somewhere.
    My friends brother was their roadie so we’d often get in to see them.

    I remember seeing them and Bernie Marsden’s Whitesnake at Rock City. The next day, Marsden & Trent DJ Graham Neale came into our shop so had a chat with them (I’ve still got their autographs somewhere.
    It wasn’t long after that Neale murdered his girlfriend and hung himself

    Your palms are holding her neck and thumbs are at her ears regulating the speed of her head as she swallows and then sucks up your machinery. She is topping up your engine oil for the cross-country coming up. Your RPM is hitting a new high. To wait any longer would be to lose prime time... She picks up a Bugatti's momentum. You want her more at a Volkswagen's steady trot. Squeeze the maximum mileage out of your gallon of gas. But she's eating up the road with all cylinders blazing.

    It was really a sad tale. It was a love triangle thing and the third person involved was the son of a family friend who also committed suicide.
    Graham Neale murdered the girl but carried on broadcasting and pretending to help the police until they worked it out he then committed suicide in Lincoln prison then the other party being the girls new boyfriend committed suicide because of what would at one time have been called a broken heart.
    Such a sad affair, the murder took place in the houses behind the Headstocks pub at the bottom of Bagnall Lane from memory.

    Yes I remember all this too. I was a regular listener to Neale who had an excellent radio programme. He did a lot for local bands too. Didn't they find the girls body out towards the power station? It was all very sad.

    If I remember right, the thrid-party was Graham Neale's best mate who had been doing the dirty with Lyn Golding, and she had left Neale for him. Neale killed her in a fit of jealousy. The mate killed himself after Neale was sentenced - I always thought it was the guilt rather a broken heart.
