It's odd. Apart from a scattering of crowd photos and the odd reference in blogs, that setlist post is pretty much the only thing online that suggests he actually played...

He wasn't even a headliner was he?  It's in that kind of interregnum between when the festival was cool and unpopular (I mean you could just rock up and get a ticket) and when it went mental again (2000).

If you know of a nice property to rent in 'Mid Wales' (Powys really, possibly Ceredigion/Monmouthshire) for a year from Aug 2020 do please drop me a line.  Many thanks!

He was in the slot that Johnny Cash had - what's now known as the Sunday Afternoon Legend slot. It was quite common for Glastonbury to put the bigger but less lively acts on the Sunday afternoon and then to let the evening tail off into a party.

I did find one article on the BBC, from before the festival and speculating that he might play (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/55804.stm) but nothing beyond a few sentences to confirm that he actually did play!

I was at Glasto '98 too and have a very vivid memory of it.

By Saturday night I was down to my last set of vaguely clean and dry clothes. However, whilst walking between stages through the rivers of mud, I disappeared down a hole and completely submerged!

Consequently I packed up the car on Sunday morning and drove back to Essex in my underpants  Shocked

My one regret at the time was that I didn't get to see Mr Dylan.

There were some interesting features on the radio, too.  On Sounds of the Seventies, they assembled a ‘Fantasy Glastonbury for 1977’, using a well-chosen selection of live tracks.  Well worth a listen.
Radio 2, Sunday, 4-5 pm




I caught some of this as I'm a regular with Johnny Walker on Sunday. Some good selections there.

Never been to Glastonbury and not likely to now. Nothing against anyone who's appeared there or the audience who attend, it just seems too big for my liking. I would have loved to have been at the first one, though, in 1970, when, if I'm right, Stackridge opened the festival. I believe T Rex were there too, or was that 1971?

1981 my one and only Glastonbury visitation and I hitched down there from the Midlands with my best friend from school- Her Auntie is Beverley Martin and she was going to be playing there. We got a lift from a dutch bloke the last bit in his VW van and were stopped by the police and questioned and searched. A scary experience in those days. I later saw one of the police disguised as a hippy in an afghan coat wondering around the festival!  It was the first CND festival and the cow shed pyramid stage had just been erected. I paid £8 for my ticket. In those days the maximum capacity was less than 20k so it never felt too crowded. There was no barrier between the crowd and the stage so you could get right up close. It was brilliant. I remember watching New order Ronnie lane and friends who replaced judy Tzuke. One of the highlights or should that be lowlights was  The fight between Ginger Baker and Roy Harper on the Friday night due to Harper over running! Hawkwind and Gong were amazing as was Taj Mahal.  It was certainly an experience for the 18 year old me!
