I was lucky enough to see Henry Cow live twice in 1977, in the February and then in the October. By the October, ill health had forced Dagmar to stop touring (I recall Lindsay Cooper also suffering with a cold that night!) I didn't realise it at the time, and of course, the band did not announce it, but Virgin had just released them from their contract. I was in my mid-teens at the time and those gigs were special memories for me. They opened the second half of the February show with 'Beautiful as the moon...' and the front rows were rocking (I know, hard to believe!)
Now that the Cow are having a brief reunion, I wonder if anybody was lucky enough, like me, to have seen them the first time around?
