A very hot summer

Great archive footage of the crowd shot at the Rolling Stones gig at Knebworth in August 1976. The film stock seems to have held up pretty well in this example, so people don't look quite as gruesome and unhealthy as they usually do in this kind of stuff; interesting to note how the crowd were relatively smartening up as the Seventies passed its halfway point – loon pants and hedgemonkey beards are thin on the ground, although Confederate Flags hint at probably Hells Angel presence.

Still looks like a pretty depressing time though.
