I started a thread about the magic city release a while ago after the record went through ebay.

Just do a quick search.

Tony Hestor on Giant is fairly well known to be honest, but hard to locate these days.

Must have missed the thread, just read it now though, the magic city copy is a strange one. I've had my copy of watch yourself for a few years so was a bit shocked to see a copy on giant on USA eBay for sale, so I dont know everything after all lol

I'll Be Your Champion was on the Kool Kat lp from the Stafford era days (maybe a bit later, I'll have to check if there is a date on the lp)

1987 the Kool Kat lp. I presume Chris King and Guy got the tapes or summit like on a trip in the mid 80's, probably from Popcorn???

was "watch yourself" booted at one time because i remember getting a copy in amongst a load of boots, label looked wrong somehow so i presumed it was a boot, sold it cheap because it looked wrong, and i did not like it at the time, sure i got it with a wd of spellbound on golden world which i also thougt was a boot, :g:

Watch Yourself was booted. Met with Tony and Popcorn many years ago, they were both somewhat annoyed at the boot business but seemed to accept that it was going on. Shame really but at least Richard (Popcorn) got something out of the scene from John Anderson, Neil Rushton etc. Steve

Just to add a few sentences, I haven't heard Tony Hester's name in a while. What a wonderful, talented and gifted writer. We all started out about that time and Tony could whip up a song in seconds. His death threw me for a loop because he was so mild mannered and never 'hung out.' I'm so glad he recorded so that we can still hear that melodic voice.
