Well, FAS reader Alessando Borri has done it again! In his bloodhound search to find missing concert dates and information about our favourite band he's actually turned up some completely unknown footage! On October 9, 1969 Free played in Essen at the 'Pop & Blues Festival' with lots of other bands. A full audio recording of the Free set has been around for a while but it appears some of the show was filmed too and below you'll find a link that takes you to the WDR (German TV) website that has posted TV coverage from the show.
The Free footage is in the second section which has the header;
'Hier und Heute' vom 14. Oktober 1969 | Rockpalast | 28.03.2016 | 09:52 Min. | WDR
below it. Free appears from 00.00.45 through 00.01.06 directly after ELP. Despite the dialogue overlay it appears the footage also has VERY good sound underneath. Is there any more.... who knows, but its fantastic to see Kossoff nailing that Hunter ending and check out Fraser breaking a string!!
There's also snipets of Colosseum, Spooky Tooth, Deep Purple (Ian Paice), Fleetwood Mac (w/Green) and others. Fabulous stuff. Its just a shame its not longer!!
