Another classic to start a corker.


Yep

They had sacked Deke for this one!

Yes, a real gem of a track.

Always brings back live memories of the band. Saw them three times, sadly never with Deke!

Adore this spacey section, very much my kind of music.

Phil Ryan on keyboards - he did a stint with one of the Pete Brown line-ups I recall

I only just learned that!

This interlude is ManMagic.

Phil Ryan - on keys for all three Man shows I saw down the years.

I saw them 4 or 5 times

At least twice at The Chalk Farm Roundhouse - a place they frequented regularly

I recall once they were supporting The Groundhogs - that was a great concert

Here's a thought - this album formed the core of the Man live experience for decades. Yet the previous album we had this evening contributed nary a jot to the Manset.

Why on earth?

And for reasons long forgotten I didn't go to see them at Reading Uni's student's union circa '75.

My mates who went enjoyed it hugely.

I have just checked - that was 1977 and Deke was in the band at that time

There is a damned fine live semi-bootleg from that year. As well as the official live album Maximum Darkness.
