Photographer Bert Saraco writes to BtP, following the interest raised by his Mystery Woman picture. We think the present enigma will be more easily solved than the former one, which remains at present unresolved.
Ah, there she is, backstage at the Hofstra Playhouse in '77, seeming to stare wistfully past Gary Brooker!
Could it be because she's not thinking about Gary, but about some other member of the band? Maybe one who played Hammond organ in still earlier times?
As you can guess, I have my own theory about who this is - and if I'm right, I'm sure we'll all know soon. Strangers in space, eh?
Bonus points to anyone who can correctly ID the bearded man near the doorway to Gary's left. The figure on the extreme left turned his back when I took the shot. Velly, velly solley, honorable Palers.
