Would love these (at about 10% of what's being asked for them).

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FAIRPORT-CONVENTION-3-UNPUBLISHED-LIVE-PHOTOS-TAKEN-BY-A-FAN-AT-MAIDSTONE-1970/372035579146?hash=item569f0c6d0a:g:uY8AAOSwbl5ZhZ7g

Do have a look at the seller's other material.  Quite hilarious.  Can't believe they ever sell a bloody thing at those prices.  The feedback suggests otherwise.  Dear oh dear.

£157+
Divide it by a hundred and free postage and maybe your about a quid more than the actual value.
That's just taking the mick

Apart from the ridiculous price asked for these photo's, I found it interesting to see Dave Pegg playing (what looks to be) a Höfner bass. The type made famous by Paul McCartney. Never saw him playing one on any other photo, film or video.

Just found out the wasp I killed yesterday was a wasp cop who was too old for this s**t and only one week away from retirement. Feel awful.

This was my 1st Fairport gig. The ticket stub is from a college gig in the same park but not for this one. I have the same ticket stub & I think it was from one in the mid 70's. It might be from the version that only played a few gigs when Maidstone was the 1st date.

I might offer £5 for the photo's!

Crikey , just seen on the US Ebay site

Fairport Convention Gottle O'Geer Waterproof Custom Shower Curtain 60x72 Inch

I think I saw one with  "From Past Archives" on it too  wasn't that an unofficial release (I can't keep up with the issuing of Fairport compilations) , the still photo from their TOTP appearance for the hit single

How crazy is that...
Fairport shower curtains
Must have built up a heck of a Chinese following over the years
Now had it been the  Unhalfbricking sleeve....oh don't tell me

Edit: This post had changed the subject line & it's in an old dead topic. Never do that. I've changed it back. Colin

The bottom photo isn’t even Fairport.  I think it’s Matthew’s Southern Comfort.
