Clearly not the original Airforce band that Chris' family and neighbours saw live at the Royal Albert in January 1970 but great stuff nonetheless

Graham has a hold over this album - a big influence

'tis, isn't it.

I'm quite sure this is my first listen, straight away it's got a bit of a good time feel. Vaguely reminiscent of Delaney and Bonnie so far.

This groove is very typical of Bond's solo work - I love it!

Such a talent despite not being a very nice man....
