And you thought the Sixties were weird

You had to show up a little later than that if you wanted to see Fela Kuti introduce his "spiritual advisor" to a London audience and then jam with Jack Bruce (on keyboards) and the whitest man on earth, Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull. Quite honestly, Anderson is probably right in deciding about halfway through that he is overmatched (he can be seen smoking a cigarette next to the drum kit and making half-hearted phallic gestures with his flute).

What a treasure. Thanks for sharing.

Mike Schneider:

It's not that Anderson is "overmatched", it's that once that brass starts wailing, nobody can hear him anymore, so there's no point.
