    1. Also, that makes 2 unidentified/unreleased Nightingales tracks from the live sets!

    2. It sounds like something off the first two lps. I even played them just to check, but no joy. Interesting to hear early stabs at Country Way songs performed by the Lloyd/Jenner/Byrchmoore/Apperley/The Lid line up.

    3. Yeah, there's a real Beefheart vibe to these versions, not sure why Lloyd didn't pursue this direction until they 'reformed' 20 years later!

  2. don't think either the 'unknown' song on this or the Glastonbury set ever had names as such. Not even sure they ever got played out more than once. Then again I used to believe I have a good memory....
    ...now what we really need are recordings of the following line up, when the Lid left and Dermot 'N' Walker joined. That would interest me greatly. Mid ,85 or thereabouts........over to you

  3. Alas the only shows from 1985 I have are the two I've already posted. I have another five live Gales sets, mostly pre-84, but also a Liverpool show from July 86 which I'm in the processs of posting any minute now!
