Meerlo, 14 july 1973

On july 14, 1973,  a 10-month old Kayak played at the Midsummer Popfestival in Meerlo, Holland. Other artists: Dizzy Man's Band (Holland), Colin Blunstone (U.K.) and others. Below you can see 2 pictures from that show.

This concert was apparently recorded for broadcast on Dutch radio. In 2005, the Fonos label released a 'Dutchpop' compilation CD, with "Mammoth" from this concert. Fonos also hoped to release the entire show, but has not provided any details since...

The VPRO broadcasting company found the recordings in their archives, and published them as streaming audio on http://www.3voor12.nl/

A great chance to hear 43 minutes of perhaps the oldest Kayak concert ever recorded!
