Very powerful band. The first (UK) side with Zoot Money is, to me, Kevin Coyne at his very best. No one can beat him there.

Here is a badge from the 1976 Europe tour:

i moved to america in 1990 after having spent a few evenings with kevin after gig in a couple of european cities over the prior 20 years .. what a shock to find out a few months back he passed away

anyway this is one of my favourite LP's i still need to get the cd for .. there were always rumors video / film that was recorded with this .. does anyone know where it can be found .. and a TV quality version of an evening with would be nice too

Thank you for this! I have the USA vinyl version, so it's missing half the songs.

Thank you, this is a gorgeous monster!

Such a pity it's not released on cd.
...It's WAY better than I expected (and I expected much).
