Neil Steadman… I have this double album….. Groundhogs etc.

Pete Prescott… It’s one of the famous 19 albums my brother Chris gave me for Christmas 1970. There is track called Here Comes Mr Time by “If”. In 1975 I was asked to join a band being formed by a guitar player with If (Terry Brown). Idiot me turned them down. They were going to tour the states with zebra. I remember tracks by cochineal and colin scott. I’ll bring it to the meeting.

Kevin Sherwood… Still got my very battered copy.

Andy Davies… I had this, someone nicked it!
