London Live is a must have for all serious music fans. Its also a nostalgia-fest for all of us old enough to have been there. Although it covers all the legendary watering holes dotted around the capital, its focus is on the Marquee, particularly the 'Wardour Street' period. The jewel in the crown for this particular tome though is the 'Marquee Data Base' in the back. Basically its a pretty definitive gig list covering the the '60s and '70s. On any given date you can find out not only who headlined but also who the support act was etc. Speaking as one who spent the period 1967-70 living in Earls Court, the Marquee at the time (along with The Ship in Wardour St.) was effectively my favourite watering hole, and the place I spent many evenings during my misspent youth. My first visit was to see Cream's final performance there in May '67. There are so many astonishing nights to remember, from watching Yes get there big break supporting the Nice. King Crimson's first appearance in '69, Jethro Tull, Taste, The Move, and being totally freaked by how good Family were. Queueing for hours to get a ticket to see Jeff Beck. Queueing for hours and failing to get a ticket for the 1st Led Zeppelin gig there! And so on. Its all here folks! Go for it! A great read!
