Brunel University, Uxbridge, Great Britain

"(MM October 31, 1970): “Being a student at Brunel University I awaited eagerly along with hundreds more the arrival of EL&P only to find their roadies had been and said the acoustics and stage were not good enough. Perhaps they didn’t know the amount of preparation that went into this and I have seen them advertised to play at places I know are far worse. Surely ELP’s success isn’t making them too fussy? But anyway, the evening was saved by a very excellent band who did not complain but played two very exciting sets and an extra half hour after two worthwhile ovations. Our thanks and compliments to Opal Butterfly. We didn’t miss ELP after all.”
