So I saw this tour with America supporting, just after they’d had a hit with Horse With No Name.

Roger Chapman was a real force of nature.

Larf and Sing - a Poli track.

Has that barbershop feel.

With Palmer's lovely vibes

Poli Palmer was an underrated musician, really. An excellent keyboard player, as well as vibes, of course.

This and Bandstand are the Family albums for me. This one’s best, though.
