In 1972, the organizers of the Glastonbury Fayre released an amazingly lavish, triple album set to raise funds for the fair. Rarity begot misconceptions, not least being that the set was recorded live at Glastonbury itself. Some of it was indeed, including Mighty Baby, both Pink Fairies tracks, the Edgar Broughton Band and Daevid Allen and Gong.
Glastonbury Fayre is a triple album released in 1972, comprising performances by acts who had appeared at the Glastonbury Festival in 1971 (see Festival line-up 1971). The album came in a foldout poster sleeve in a printed PVC outer sleeve, with a 32 page illustrated booklet, a poster sheet and a foldout Silver Pyramid, all designed by Barney Bubbles. Although the performances are live, not all of the performances were actually recorded at the Festival.
The Festival moved to the time of the Summer Solstice and was known as the Glastonbury Fair. It had been planned by Andrew Kerr and Arabella Churchill who felt all other festivals at the time were over commercialised. It was paid for by the few who supported the ideal so the entrance was free and took a medieval tradition of music, dance, poetry, theatre, lights and spontaneous entertainment. The musicians who performed recorded a now very rare album. The Festival is also captured a la Woodstock by a 1972 film crew that included Nick Roeg, Sandy Lieberson and Si Litvinoff. This film was called Glastonbury Fayre. Acts included: Hawkwind, Traffic, Melanie, David Bowie, Joan Baez, Fairport Convention and Quintessence. Attendance: estimated at 12,000.
