Here's a man video from 1997 that was uploaded a while ago. It's one of the first gigs with Bob Richards at the drum seat. Hilarious stage banter by deke but they play an amazing version of Driving Around from Call down the moon.

Agreed! I'm pretty sure the overdubbing was on bananas since Cipollina's guitar went out of tune on that track. I rather hear overdubbed parts in tune rather than a guitar that was out of tune ;D. Agree with the bass.

I agree, Maximum Darkness is an amazing album. And if I had to pick a highlight, it would be MACBFGU.

However, the fella who introduced me to Man all those years back refused to buy the album because he felt it was so much overdubbed, it wasn't a live album.

Bass guitar on the album is good, isn't it 😁

I saw them on the opening night of that tour, 4 days previously at the Southend Kursaal. Deke was kind enough to honour my attendance by mentioning that Gig in RW+L  8)

It was a great gig and the tour produced, in my opinion, the best live album in Maximum Darkness.

I agree with your opinion of Maximum Darkness. It's an amazing live album even though it's Man with no keyboard player & three guitarists. For me the high point is Many Are Called But Few Get Up with Terry's absolutely incredible drumming.

That's awesome! Deke was a class act.  ;D Love his books and he was a good guitar player and vocalist to boot. I agree maximum darkness is one of man's real highlights and one of the best things they have done. I still am a huge fan of Padget rooms but Maximum darkness is more consistent.

Fair enough. Was this gig also part of the live adventures boxset? Because i recognize the incomplete version from the manchester cd. Wasn't the gig radio broadcast or was it just a cassette recorder?


I recall we determined that the info etc on 'Live Adventures' was poor and that it had the wrong Manchester Venue - it should be the Free Trade Hall on May 20 1975. Recorded off the desk.

Correct. I recall it stating the wrong venue. Hardrock I think.

Can't believe that Gong has already sold out their Hebden Bridge gig  next March 2022. Where did that come from? 😁😄

Fair enough. Probably didn't help that there was no liner notes just a cheap cardboard box. Really dig cipollina's playing and quicksilver although I felt he was a little underpowered with man.

I'm not sure whether I can drag my other half down to London for this gig but I will try & catch another gig. We saw Man at the Stables near Milton Keynes last tour. The Jim Marshall auditorium is a brilliant venue & best of all it's seated. My ageing back isn't really up to a standing gig any more.

I saw Man with John Cippolina in Bournemouth on that tour. As I recall the venue was a former bowling alley with quite a low ceiling. The gig was great as I recall it & I remember John Cippolina playing his horizontal slide guitar quite a lot. TBH this was all seen through a psychedelic fog & it was the early hours of the morning before it was safe enough for us to drive back to Southampton. :)
