Here's one for all the late period Wigan / Richard fans who kept badgering me to post this tape up, it's not the same tape as I mentioned on Soul Source but it is from probably the same month and is in way better quality. See how many of those cover up names you can make out, I've listed all of them uncovered except for Chris Bartley as I don't think the real artist was ever uncovered was it? The tape was labelled 1979 but it's definitely 1980. Thanks to the original taper whoever it was.

No matter what else was going on I always made sure I was around when Mr Searlings spot was on (And Vincents as it was normally the best 2 hours) And to me he got better as the years went on. Yeah I know he got the cream 1st picks from the barn and he did play a tad too much 'modern' for my ears but some of these are truly amazing. He might be right tho Pete it does sound a bit speedy. I'd need 2 packs of gum just to get thru William Powell. As a side note and a big YAYYYY to me I just got a Damon Fox last week! 1st tried to buy Richards around this time but he acted like he didn't even hear me haha Took me 36 years buyt got there in the end! Willnow stick it on me Youtube channel
