Recorded on the 9th February 1979. Gerry McAvoy never ever had a bad night, he would gather the cream of British rock and blues stars who would come on down for one of his nights, queuing to get on stage and have a blow.

In this instance the musicians that turned up were; Steve Waller, who was playing regularly at the Bridge and was also chosen by Manfred Mann to join his band. Little Stevie Smith on Harmonica and Vocals. Ted McKenna and Lou Martin who were with Gerry in the Rory Gallagher band, Brendon O’Neill who became Rory Gallagher's drummer, Ron Carthy and Mick Eves on Trumpet and Sax.
