    Concerning:
    1975-02-14 Aberdeen (UK) University

    Just been informed that although the show was advertised in the local press, at short notice it appears not to have taken place?

    Here is a further reply from John Bruce about some of his investigative work:
    I made contact with the publishers of the newspaper I recalled with the notice of the Magma concert. This time by telephone. They no longer maintain an archive of the newspapers but suggested the Dundee Library. I had also had a prior word with the Library and a very helpful lady by the name of Deirdre took down the information that I was able to provide and following some research she came back to me. She seemed to have been very thorough, even to the point of checking out Magma on the internet!!

    She checked some dates either side of the date in question but found no reference to a Magma concert. However the paper did carry a notice about a concert in the same venue on the same date by Ian Carr’s Nucleus!

    Hello everyone I’m Italian, I came to this site because I am looking for a recording of 1975 (23/02) at the Roundhouse where they performed as well as Magma and other historical groups, an Italian singer Franco Battiato.
    And ‘possible to somehow have to register with Franco Battiato? Thank you.
