The Four Pennies 'Black Girl'

What was the first band you ever saw live? For many years I always thought it was Wings on their Red Rose Speedway tour at the Hippodrome but seeing this clip reminded me that it was the Four Pennies - they played in Radstock - outside at a shop opening or something - anyone out there remember that? I also saw the Bachelors in pantomime too. Anyway this is a pretty good version of Leadbelly's original most famously covered by Nirvana as 'My Girl'.
