An enjoyable read. Thanks for posting. I had to miss the Anniversary (and patch) so particularly worth pondering. Never knew people were climbing in through the roof. Was unaware that journalists were present. Author ovelooked the real third section of the Casino, the back bar record room. The article is as good a summary of how it actually was in the mid Seventies, very accurate and well expressed.

Agreed. Nicely observed and written. Cracking up was memorable on the night, just like Goodbye nothin to say was the year before at the first anniversary. Thanks for the memories.

Nowts changed there then lol
