Fraid I've never heard of him! My catalogue of shame includes Dubliners & 'Band Of Two' a localish band to the south east. Saw them at a pub in Brighton & then in Redhill.

I also have bit of Chris Barber hidden in my collection!

I should point out that Trad Jazz and Folk are small unsightly blots on an otherwise sound CD collection. ;-)

Incidently - Took 16 hours to do the rear bushes on the Rover. No press so we couldn't drop the trailing arms down onto the lateral links and do it in situ. Instead the whole trailing arm had to come off both sides. A single sheared bolt took 6 hours to drill out... In the end we used a file and hack saw blades to open out a ten mill hole.

Got the bushes for 8 quid each from a local motorfactor - hope they last!
