Smile memorabilia and gigs

Thankyou to Martin from QueenConcerts.com for photographing this excellent Smile memorabilia from his personal collection. The poster above was designed and printed by Freddie Mercury, whilst the Smile logo below is one that was made for Roger Taylors drum by Tim Staffell. Wonderful stuff.

Last night I managed to speak to Peter Gill-Carey who was a contemporary and close friend of The Reaction, and the person who was most badly injured in the accident on Goss Moor. He said lots of very interesting things, but one of them was that he clearly remembers a gig by Smile at a Church Hall in Truro. This is significant because it is an example of yet another Smile gig in Cornwall that has not been previously documented.
