  1. Hey Roby nice blog you got here!
    Tks for the Bakerloo and the Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso.
    This Colosseum Live was one of my favorites in the 70's, I still have the double lp and on cd. Hope you don't mind if I make a link on my blog.
    By the way, I've been to a Heep concert at the Rainbow, on the 6th January 1973, I think, do you have it for downloading?
    I was on the first row and it was quite curious that there were five chairs by the side of the stage, for the girlfriends of the band, and all the girls were typical English looking ladies, with all the dresses and hairstyles, high heels and painted nails, in contrast to what the guys looked, longhaired in black leather...
    Other thing I recall well was when Mick Box trown his axe up, high, and caught it on the air when it came down, and continued playing, it was amazing. Well, cheers and all the best.

  2. Hey Roby nice blog you got here!
    Wish you all the best...

  3. Thank you for your comment, Carlinhos, and for the tale about Uriah Heep concert. In 1973 i was only 4 years old and i didn't know who are UH!!!
    I am only a little contributor of this blog and the creator of it is my friend Abominog jnr, so your thanks are for him too. I have not the bootleg of the 1973 concert at Rainbow that you mention, if my friend Abominog jnr has it i am sure that he will post.
    No problem for me if you make a link to this blog on yours, but i don't find your blog because your profile is not public...
