Photos from Leamington Spa now up on my website  http://homepage.ntlworld.com/markdav/index.htm.

Not at all piss poor Mark, a very welcome set. Great to see Deke so obviously enjoying James' playing too.
Boldly going.......

Yes, that's the impression I got as well.

Hey, Mark. Got to agree with you. The photo's.......piss poor.


No they weren't and you know it. Irrespective of whichever side of the wall you fall (name the Deke song that comes from) in the great MA debate (and i'm gutted not to be included in Pete T's gang of two, though that would make it three), nevertheless, great photos. And there does seem to be a fair sprinkling of punters.

I see on one of the photo's, our Jules was being extremely rude, turning his back on the artistes. Could Jules be a closet number 4?

One of the highlights was the clear enjoyment Deke had through this event.
His rapport with James was worth the entry fee on its own - there seemed to be a flow of empathy and joy between them.
Superb.

Thanks for the review. Expecting some video too...

There were one or two personal video cameras in evidence. You never know what might turn up on YouTube.

Took lots of video but sadly its not good enough for you tube - might try and assemble a montage though

Gutted not to be included in Gavin's hit list of Martin "Spawn of the Devil" Ace publicists. Must try harder. So in that spirit...

Photos from Leamington Spa now up on my website  http://homepage.ntlworld.com/markdav/index.htm.

Apologies that they look piss poor compared to Syd Wall's magnificent efforts. Again, must try harder.

P.S. Enjoyed the gig greatly.
Didnt realise the height difference between the wife and I  - so thanks for pic 14!! :o
Photo 63 deserves an award for capturing a great moment - thanks

No idea, but I did take a copy of Map of India to the gig for Deke to sign....sadly failed ;-(

So I was! That must have been about two songs in. I'd had enough by then.  ;)

If I'm a closet anything, can I be a closet number 6?

At the risk of being repetitive - some excellent photos here Mark, thanks. Good memories. (And to the sceptics amongst you a fair portion of the audience was to the rear and side of these photos - I must have been somewhere to the right and behind the camera most of the time because even my back is not shown!)

Good memories.

The discussion about Stacia is on another thread  ::)

Enjoyable reading Jules.

A few years? I make it "since 1975!!!"
Well worth the trip on the 1st. I wish it had not been such a long gap, I missed a lot.
