Vlaardingen - St.Goarshausen - Vlaardingen 880km.

Left home sunday morning around 8:30, easy driving through the south of Netherlands and Germany, arrived 12:30 in St.Goarshausen. When we were waiting in front of the closed gate I heard the sound-check from Mungo Jerry, because a trio-gig was planned it was not possible that only a trio can make this sound. Later I saw behind the fence Tim and Torsten, that's what i thought Big surprice because as written in the tourlist not a Trio-Gig but the full British band on stage. The gig was life on radio by SWR1 who organised this Oldie festival. In my upinion the best gig 'til now I visit this year, everyone has give the best they've got. Again a very great extended version of "In The Summertime" The audience was wonderful, clapping, foot tapping and singing from begin 'til end of the gig and a lot of photo's are made. Because the stage was far from the tribune I repleaced the front lens of my camera, the security told me it was not aloud to make photo's with a zoom lens, only standard was aloud !? too late, because I had made photo's with 135mm and 270mm already.
After the gig Ray planned a signature session, Britta sold a lot of Cd's , Move On - The Latest & Greatest, because a lot of interest the signature session became more as a hour.
Problems again with the security (as usual) to get backstage even when Ray introduced us, no way in ! The charme of a woman is needed here.....Ray's wife talked with the security we came in, thanks Britta.
Nice chat with all bandmembers and Ray signed again two items from my collection. The rest of the bandmembers signed the sign "Dressingroom Mungo Jerry" I'll get from the dressingroom door. In the dressingroom Mick showed us his know how of art, see photo L36a. For fun I made a T-shirt with a picture from Ray, made in Losheim am See, Ray was amused about the T-shirt and Torsten made a photo from both of us. We left the area 'round eight and arrived home half past midnight, tired as well but with a great feeling.
When you wonder why I'm such a fan of Ray Dorset & Mungo Jerry ? visit a gig, buy Cd's and records, and you know why........
Rob.
