Mike Curtis… Roger, I’ve still got it!

Geoff Peckham… Me too! Favourite track: Don’t You Fret.

Roger Carey… That’s great! “Don’t you fret” – very original song! There was a follow up Marble Arch Kinks compilation called “Sunny Afternoon ” – had another bunch of great songs which I listened to endlessly! Liane and I used to do one from this disc called “I gotta move” and there’s another unusual one called “Sitting on my Sofa”!

Graham Sherrington… YES ALBUM still have a CD in the car
