Jane Hartley… I’m already planning to see Gerry across the Mersey and the 5 faces ofMannfred Mann, next week the Fortunes!
Andre Martin… Well done Alan, following the good music as always – great number this with an interesting personal story for Gerry.
Jim Hobbs…Great song, well sung, well produced. A ‘Prime Cut’. Anybody remember ‘Porky Prime Cut’ etched into the inner ring of some classic eighties singles?
Alan Esdaile… Remember Porky Prime Cuts Jim Hobbs on the records but forgot the story behind it. Here is what Discogs says about it… George Peckham, better known as “Porky” [as in “A Porky Prime Cut”] is a lacquer-cutting and mastering engineer with an illustrious career that includes work on the Beatles, Genesis and Led Zeppelin catalogue. He started his career in disc cutting as a trainee at Apple in 1968 and his signature can be found in the dead/wax runout grooves of many classic and obscure Rock, Punk, Post-Punk and New-Wave records that were pressed in the UK. Porky would often include cryptic and humorous messages on his work [eg. “You’ll Never Work Again” is inscribed on the A side runout of The Fall’s LP “Totale’s Turns (It’s Now Or Never)”]. http://www.discogs.com/artist/380591-George-Peckham
