A few local people played on this one as The Firm including Phil Gill, Steve Demetri, Andy Caine, Wesley Magoogan, Ray Fenwick.

Phil Gill….The first session Steve and I ever did for Ray.  Some good tales about McCartney and Jimmy McCulloch,  John Perry (from Grapefruit, a Beatles signing to Apple) had some great stories about Cliff Richard and Alan Tarney – John was in Cliff’s backing band at the time and sorted us out with tickets for a Cliff show. Jo Jo spent about £60 on t-shirts from a gift shop on the sea-front. We nailed it first take, Wes was a complete pro, Ray paid us for the session and it made the Radio 1 playlist, so I heard it it on my car radio – double result. The b-side was my favourite.

Andy Caine.…Hi Chaps,I don’t have any photo’s I’m afraid! Remember the session though. She was quite a character.
