A fine concert. I think Thunderbyrd sounds very good in this upload, and there's a variety of songs, including from his solo albums (which he should have done more of in his later concerts) and his singing is enthusiastic. It's not often we get to hear such rarities as these, so thanks once again to all involved.

Many thanks R-B
You keep on coming through!
Ugly Bob Spencer was a dj on Radio Scotland. Don't know why but his name came into my head just now!

Bob Spencer wasn't with Radio Scotland anymore when I went there in July 1967. But dj Tony Allan took me to a discothèque in Glasgow where Bob was deejaying so I met him there.
