Finally got hold of one of these -- in fact, not one but two copies, would you believe it, from the same seller in separate transactions: a pristine one for the vault, and a slightly damaged/stained one to scan and photoshop for this presentation. 

I don't know the full details, but the images and text (particularly the MG T-shirt offer therein -- $5 for the shirt plus $1.25 shipping!!) suggest that MG (British Leyland Motors), maker of the popular (at the time) MGB and Midget convertibles, was a sponsor of the Song for All Seasons tour.  The concert program was in the form of a four-way foldout A3 sheet, with a band poster on one side, and front/back cover plus foldout article spread on the other.

AH I remember this program so well From The Song For All Seasons tour. I treasured it untill it was stolen from my car in 1980. Thank you so much for the post. I can now re-treasure it and the memory that comes with it. NEATO BURRITO!<3

After a bit of research on the  internet, I think these were taken in the back car park of a pub called The Thatch at Thame in Oxfordshire.

If anyone knows different I'd be happy to be informed.

I asked them on Facebook. :-)

I asked them on Facebook. :-)

They said "no": 

The search continues.

This picture was also in the Renaissance Songbook. Same one with the pictures I got autographed. I always wondered about the MG's, Thought they must've done some ad work for BLM. I guess in a way they did.
