Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
I do apologise again for hijacking the thread, but just wanted to echo the fond memories expressed by Frank above of the Place, in Victoria Street Edinburgh , where R & B Inc played in the early sixties.

Intimate wasn't the word, I remember listening to Memphis Slim (with R &B Inc backing him) leaning against the back of his piano with my elbows on the lid. Ditto for Champion Jack Dupree who played the following week.

Barry might be able to confirm or not, but one of my other memories of the Place (possibly fallacious) is that the Gents urinals consisted literally of a bank of soil with a rough hewn channel at the base, no plumbing, no tiles no nothing.

I do remember for a fact that all you could buy for refreshment was sausage rolls and coca-cola, but everybody still left the Place on a high, just from the music.

Oh happy days ...
