Inverness, for those not familiar with Scotland, is the capital of the Highlands, a long way from most everywhere else. So putting a festival on there and getting a good roster of bands to play, can't have been easy. However in 1970, bands would tour the highway and byways of the UK more fearlessly than they do today.
With Taste, Savoy Brown, Atomic Rooster, Brinsely Schwarz, If and Black Widow on the bill, it was a must go-to gig for all the local heads. Black Widow closed the show but was not allowed to 'sacrifice' a woman which was part of their act at the time. Thank the lord for that.
It was held at Inverness Caledonians FC original ground on Telford Street. They were an amateur football club but had a decent wee stadium. I know the area well as we used to live across the water on the Black Isle and used to go to Inverness most weeks.
