When this PIC was taken, looks like Jack Bruce was neither rolling in dough nor playing the most high-tone of venues yet.

Tough times:

His socks and shoes look as tired as the seating! That bass definitely looks “road worn” too.

Also seems to have a cast on his left hand. Bar fight?

That has to be a pic from the Graham Bond Organsation days so is probably pre 1965. Jack initially played an upright bass in this line up, which included Ginger Baker. Baker was reputedly given the job by Graham Bond of sacking Bruce in mid 1965 due to their continual rows (Baker & Bruce that is ..... the Cream issues were still to come!)
I believe I have a 45rpm record somewhere of Long Tall Shorty which must have included JB.
