A ready identifying himself as dav./ found this intriguing piece of paper from Commercial Entertainments, which I assume was a booking agency working out of London. They had a long list of clients including The Small Faces, Joe Cocker, and Jethro Tull. For promoters looking to book acts, they had this handy price list.
The most expensive band to book was The Small Faces who had an asking price of £450. Accounting for inflation, that’s the equivalent of CAD$13,000 a today. That would have been a pretty good payday back then.
Joe Cockers fee of £350 equates to about CAD$6,000. Jethro Tull and The Moody Blues could have been had for the same amount.
Scrolling down a little further, the name Pink Floyd comes up. Their cost was just £250. That’s CAD$7,200 today.
Enjoy the full list.
