A Report From the Festival

“The Easybeats got a fine reception and opened with “Friday On My Mind” but some spoil sport had their amplification down at the mains switch. For the first number we got a virtual drum solo from Tony and a belting vocal from Stevie. This was remedied by the group who realised they were being done and turned up their amps for “Good Times.” With all the guitars a-go-go it was a first rate sound. The excellent Czechoslovakian orchestra was brought in to augment the group under the direction of Norrie Paramor and we got first class renditions of “What In The World,” “Hello How Are You” and “Sha La La” which Stevie managed to turn into a singalong. To their credit they seemed to please not only the young but also the adults who kept their places for once.” – New Musical Express,  22nd June, 1968.
