The Classic Rock Society - defenders of the faith for many years - hold a yearly awards show. So I and m'colleague James "Gigging Forever" Hendry travelled North to the traditional home of the awards, Wath-Upon-Dearne.
With field recorder in hand and some beers on board, we ventured into the bright lights and glitz of the awards only to find there Godsticks, Magenta, Rob Reed, Andy Tillison, Jon "Twang" Patrick, Bob Harris and Steve Hackett !!
Apologies for the sound quality on the recordings, this was caused by total incompetence with a mic on my part but it WAS very noisy and my poor little field recorder got a bit overwhelmed at times, esp with Mr Hackett. I've done the best I can with the recordings, but some of them are a some of them are a little ropey.
Congrats to all the winners and many thanks to James for co-hosting. Most of all, thanks to Miles Bartaby and the rest of the CRS for allowing us to infiltrate their event.
