British Rock Calendar - October 1974

Less than a week after seeing Rick Wakeman's
"Journey to the Center of the Earth" concert at 
San Francisco's Civic Center, we were back to Winterland.
Traffic and Lindisfarne played. This was the second time 
I had seen Traffic at Winterland. A week later 
we saw Elton John for the second time, too. 
Kiki Dee was the opening act. They played at the 
Oakland Colosseum. Traffic were terrific and performed 
as a four-piece with Jim Capaldi on drums. 
We all felt that Elton John was not as good as he was
 the first time we saw him a year earlier. He had peaked
with "Good-Bye Yellow Brick Road" and never 
achieved the same quality.
We planned to see Brian Auger and Donovan
that month, but both cancelled.
