    Shall I confess? I went to see Wishbone Ash on their 'Just Testing' tour. (Still got the LP and my ticket stub. )

    I remember them being pretty good. Good enough for me that I spent money on an album too. Hadn't known much about them when I went to see them. Can't remember why I went to see them even (and I went on my own). But I did enjoy the concert I know that.

    Found this one (which I remember well.)

    My husband loves Mott/Ian Hunter but he never saw Hunter all the years he lived in England until last year on our visit to Newcastle (at the Journal Theatre). Most of the gigs he went to were at Newcastle City Hall - I should find out which was the first.

    We had a Wishbone Ash cassette, but I really can't remember much about it other than we liked it.

    Very cool list, tg!
