Not really that familiar with Cippo apart from Maximum Darkness and the Quicksilver album Happy Trails ,but that tune on YouTube Pride of Man is superb

Great memories. The Oystermouth Rd experience was as much a part of the JBO's (remember that phrase?) as the gig.

Clearly remember Dec 1999, our first JBO and first visit to Oystermouth Rd. Hideous 7 hour plus journey, late for the meet at the Wetherspoons on Wind St, greeted by the landlady, introduced myself, she immediately said "you can stay if you want but we've just been broken into and there'll be no breakfast tomorrow".  The setting had been well and truly set for the next Jeez knows how many years. Perfect.

Rob - The article makes mention of "all weathers". You will remember the walk back along the Oystermouth Road on that first JBO. Yourself, Mr Heron and I were savaged by the wind and rain from the Bristol Channel on the way back from the Railways men's club.

And it is still the only gig I have ever been too where the encore was delayed so they could draw the raffle!!!!

Also - didn't we all meet up in the pub mentioned in the article for one of the Patti gigs a couple of years later. Prior to going for a curry in the converted church just up from the Patti - still a surrealistic experience.

Those Jolly Boys Outings certainly were an experience and I won't mention the tapes you lent to one of the Neil's (Shit - I just did :-[ )

Great stuff, although by an atypical configuration of the Pirates, with Greg Douglass, normally the other lead guitarist, missing.

That song is unusual in that Terry Dolan isn't involved apart from the intro; David Hayes handling the lead vocals.

The clip is from the Rockpalast TV show, recorded at the Markthalle, Hamburg, Germany, December 6, 1982. The show was eventually released on CD and DVD in 2010/11 as Rockpalast: West Coast Legends Volume 5. Both are still available according to Amazon UK.

Cipollina also features on another Rockpalast release: West Coast Legends, Volume 1: John Cipollina/Nick Gravenites Band
- Westfalenhalle, Dortmund, November 28, 1980
, released on CD & DVD.


I just looked on Amazon UK to see if the extended remaster of Too Close for Comfort (released by Evangeline/Acadia in 2008) is still available... it is, but in limited quantities and costing upwards of 40!  :o

Great Joan, with QMS's Greg Elmore on drums.

Last time I spoke to Deke we were discussing Cipollina and we both rated the Copperhead album. Worth checking out if you like things crunchy.
