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http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FAIRPORT-CONVENTION-3-UNPUBLISHED-LIVE-PHOTOS-TAKEN-BY-A-FAN-AT-MAIDSTONE-1970/372035579146?hash=item569f0c6d0a:g:uY8AAOSwbl5ZhZ7g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

My partner and I are running the Chester 10k on 10 March to raise money for our local hospice, and to raise awareness of the hospice movement.  Please click on my website for more info.  Thanks.

£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!
