High Tide..wasn't this the band that was a bit Hawkwindesque led by Tony Hill? ( who was a  tad Jim Morrison ,(Doors) ) and sometimes included Simon House of Hawkwind and   Third Ear Band.
My memories not so good , but I think they played in Birmingham a bit before the Warwick gig , deffo did the Roundhouse around Easter time. They toured after their 69 album Sea Shanties, which is still well worth listening to, even today.
I think they didnt go down too well at Warwick, I might be wrong. or there was some problem about payment,
They could be a bit too Beefheart for some

Thanks for that Lesley - I did see the gig with High Tide but can't remember much much about them now - T'was an age and a half ago. Ithink they alos played the Village in Cov and possibly the Plough - will check archives.

In 1973 we had booked REO Speedwagon as one of the main rock acts. They pulled out late (visa problems as far as I recall) and we were offered The Average White Band for the same price (£65!). The AWB played a great set, ran out of numbers and finished way past the allotted time with a medley of Motown and Stax songs. A great, great band.
