RE: 9/10/1970 Glasgow GB City Hall

I recall my friend Jim McClymont telling me about Seeing Taste at that venue. I asked him about that yesterday during a FB chat, and asked if he remembered it. With his kind permission, I'll relay his recollection:

me: Didn't you see Rory in Glasgow in 1970?
JM: With Taste, aye.
me: You Remember much about it?
JM: Loads. John Wilson had a tetanus jab that day as a dog had bitten him. Rory announced that after the first number.
me: Did it affect John's playing?
JM: No chance, but he did sit funny on his stool.
me: Ah, he got the shot there.
JM: Aye. lol

I asked Jim for his permission to post his recollections, and he wrote:

The venue, City Halls Glasgow, Date 10th Sept 1970

Stone the Crows were the first band, and Maggie Bell was on fire they had just returned from a tour of the USA. Next on was Jake Holmes, {said to be] Canada's answer to Bob Dylan so the compere told us. Jake's claim to fame is that he wrote Dazed and Confused that Led Zeppelin covered.

Then came the magic; Richie Mckracken on bass, John Wilson on drums, and Rory Gallagher on guitar ....Taste. I was hooked. They played some tracks from the Taste album and almost all of On the Boards.

That is amazing Cynthia. Please say thank you to Jim from another Glaswegian. I would have loved to have been at that gig but I was only 9. It must have been amazing to have seen all of those great bands. Stone the Crows is a band I've always loved since about the age of 14, but imagine seeing Taste, wow.
