"This was a Melody Maker sponsored show at stately Woburn Abbey the home of the Duke of Bedford. I don’t think the Duke attended, but many others did & Jimi played a great gig as top of the bill. The stage was around 10 feet high so not great for being in front of the stage as all you could see was Jimi’s head, so I went backstage & got a few shots from the side against the spotlights." - Barrie Wentzell
