Sarah Harvey….July 1973. Remember them playing ‘Gimme Some Lovin’ and it was superb played live. Loved ’em. And of course a great band in support!

Phil Gill….I was at that gig, watching Ray Fenwick, It was the “Gluggo” tour, and “Catch You On the Rebop”, the single form the album was all over the radio. I really liked it – here it is.

Phil Gill….I was then 17. Fast forward seven years and Steve Demetri, Andy Caine and I end up playing on When The Boys Happy by Jo Jo Laine & The Firm with Ray Fenwick, Funny old world….

Terry Pack….I  saw Ray with Fancy, supporting 10cc at The Dome in 1975. He was excellent, as were Mo, Les and Annie.

Andy Qunta….I  just checked my diary, & it says Factory got a tremendous reception & did 2 encores! Wish I could actually remember it! Always liked the SDG & supporting them was very exciting!

Bernard Jeffery….I did see the original band probably one of their last gigs as I was very young and later met Steve Winwood when I was recording with his brother Muff producing at Island studios

Dennis Torrance… Another great band Steve Winwood and band. Also Factory brill band still are.

Jacquie Hinves… A very young Ray Fenwick. Gorgeous as ever.

Peter Houghton… Yes it was a great night and seeing Stevie Winwood
