Alan Esdaile….Very good band ‘Jack The Lad’ . I think it was the remains of ‘LIndisfarne’ after they split up. Also we put them on at Eastbourne Collage.

Andy Gunton….I saw them a few times myself. Good band & yes, some of them were in Lindisfarne beforehand.

Jim Breeds….I  have a couple of Jack The Lad LPs. Great stuff. “It’s Jack The Lad” CAS 1085 and “The Old Straight Track” CAS 1094. Both LPs from 1974, bizarrely. They must have been on a roll! Billy Mitchell, Simon Cowe, Ray Laidlaw & Rod Clements. Rod Clements founded Lindisfarne with Alan Hull. When they broke up in ’73 he founded JTL.

Thanks to Jim Breeds for finding this rare cinema ad from 1974….

Peter Thomson… Remember that one fondly. Excellent gig.

Jim Breeds… I saw them then. Still have that album and another. “The Third Millennium” seemed so far away at the time!
