and from 1974

Phil Gill…..Brilliant gig – Ollie Halsall, what a player. And they did a storming version of Paperback Writer too. How about you Pete Fisher?

Mick Knights….If I’m not mistaken Jon Hiesman introduced himself as Ginger Baker!

Glenn Piper… I  remember this one 🙂

Chris Meachen…. Brilliant gig;- I remember Hiseman juggling during his solo, sticks spinning in the air above his head while others bounced off drums.. Ollie Halsall also impressed by switching from left-handed guitar to right-handed bass for one number….

Pete Fisher… Remember having the album for sure…I have a list of concerts I remember going to, but don’t have the ticket, and this isn’t on it…but I must have been there…hazy days….

David Miller… Great to see the splendid Ollie Halsall in those pics on keys and especially guitar.

Pete Fisher… shared this to the Ollie Halsall and Patto Fan group Facebook page, and what a small world it is Roger Carey and Iain Cobby, as Tobias Van De Peer asked if the Roger I mentioned was you, and said he’s in Iain’s band!

Martyn Baker… I definitely went to this one. Cannot remember much about it though.
