Sarah Harvey… This day July 21st, 1973 on Hastings Pier. American progressive band Gypsy. I have a lot of their music in my library and it is really worth a listen.

Alan Esdaile…  Alias were signed to Martin Casson Agency and sure Andre has memories of them.

Pete Fisher… ust by the way here, seeing Status Quo billed for July 28th, my diary tells me I was at their pier gig on 2nd March that year, one of those gigs where I really did think those wooden floorboards were going to give way under the bopping masses any minute! Date confirmed on this page, which gives you an idea of the gruelling touring schedule bands had back in the day…https://www.quogigography.net/92.html

Pete Fairless… Shows what a major venue the ballroom was! 1973 was the year Quo really took off, you can see from the link, they put the work in!

Louis Comfort-Wiggett.. Isn’t this the band Gypsy (from Leicestershire I believe) rather than the US lot?

Clive Richardson… Gypsy were excellent. Really good sound. They had no roadies, no manager at the time and did the sound themselves. Paul Casson was very impressed and was interested in managing them.

Pete Houghton… I saw Gypsy on pier and it was a good concert and my fav track is per me take you home and is one of my fav track’s
