quite a few at wigan - only ones i attended were edwin starr, tommy hunt and i think i saw archie and drells?

You did Grant, I've got a tape I did of that night where Searling is going nuts at the people setting up on stage as they keep making his records jump "if anyone ever wanted to see Monty Pythons Flying Circus live it's happening right now on stage" ... must upload that tape, it's a cracker.

Where possible could you attempt a stab at what year the artists performed?

It'd be nice to knock a list up in year date at the end of the thread.

Just been trying to find a list of Torch artists via google.

There aint one as far as I can see.

Pity that.

There must be people with memorabillia who can help.

CM was my first nighter. Best live for me was Ray Pollard live at the 100 Club (before he did Yarmouth that weekend) - was always ambivalent towards much of his output him until that performance.

I was right on the glass door Ian - the only thing that stopped it shattering was the fire door push handle, the glass was actually bending - scary.

Were they on the same time as Sam and Dave? remember the saxaphone player got a huge ovation,was it not the one that became the last night? meaning it turned into an all-dayer

Steve
