Pan’s People – Temma Harbour

Top of the Pops 26 February 1970: Pan’s People dance to Mary Hopkin’s Temma Harbour.

Pan’s People – Both Sides Now

Top of the Pops, 5 February 1970: Pan’s People dance to Judy Collins’ Both Sides Now. A fairly muted performance here, to a middle-tempo folk-pop classic.
