Good clear pic...We can now see the colour of Leonard's pyjamas underneath the safari jacket!

Good point Margaret! (I was vaguely wondering the same thing myself). From this, we can drawer two possible conclusions - either that Leonard wears unusual pyjamas or the pyjama legend applies only to the lower half.

Super exciting. It will be fun to compare Isle of Wight with Live in London. :) I think LC's never been as textured and as wonderful as he is now, but it will be a fun adventure to go back.

Sebmelmoth2003 - The island is wonderful as ever especially in this heatwave. It would be great for Leonard to pay us a visit, maybe rekindle his memories of the festival.

I heard of a man who says words so beautifully that if he only speaks their name women give themselves to him.

I'm a newbie here (well, relatively!). Just got into LC this year. Anybody have any idea what the set list for that show was - or know where I can get his concert set lists?

Also, I think there are some pretty "hot" pictures of Leonard dressed hippie style... I suppose he could have dressed up like Agnetha Fältskog and still have looked gorgeous! ;-)
