A commercially ill fated festival held in the showgrounds at Ingliston near Edinburgh, good weather, good organisation but perhaps too diverse a bill that did not appeal to a wide enough audience .
The pairing of Van and the Cheiftains with a New wave set of acts was probably not a good idea in 1979, when audiences were quite polarised as to their likes and dislikes. 12,000 was not a big enough audience to justify another outing in 1980 .
(There is another superb copy that circulates – I would highly recomend it ifyou can find it – a JTT version of this show with an Introduction bonus track incluced)
