I had the rare privilege of lunching with John Vincent a few years back not long after his health prevented him from full time radio. It was 3 hours I will remember forever: he had a dry wit and perfect sense of timing...and his resemeblance to advertising icon Leo Burnett was frightening! Thanks for posting this pice. Cheers - Kevin

I had this album when I was a teenager. Unfortunately, due to many parties, the album became unplayable.
Can I get an MP3 of the entire album please?
Many thanks, Ian

Hi Ian I will get onto it over the week end. I only have the front cover scan because it wasn't my LP and never got to get the back but do have all the tracks.
