fredslam I was 21 when this album was recorded. Phil Collen (Def Leppard) and I were in a band and we used to go down and see these bands play the Bridgehouse. The quality of musicianship is through the roof. We were greatly inspired and I am still a fan of the likes of Dave Edwards, Dennis Stratton, Stevie Lange, Chris Thompson, Lea Hart Jnr, all of them really, it would be unfair to leave any of the guys out of my list. Simply brilliant. Favorite track: I Cant Get Next To You.


This was a Chris Thompson production and he really worked his socks off, having to not only deal with his own band Filthy McNasty, but the other bands as well.

The release of this album was the highlight of the Bridge House's success. We formed a record and publishing company and at that time we was the only pub in the world with it's own record label.

Managed by Terry Murphy, it was where bands such as Iron maiden, The Blues Band, Depeche Mode stared their careers and others such as Rory Gallagher and Stevie Marriott finished off theirs. ... more
