WIZZ:
Another curio for the complete-ists. This was a demo for Pierre Tubbs, and was to be my attempt at a chart hit!

With Ralph McTell at the helm we recruited the band 'Fat Harry' who were Gary Peterson - keyboard, Phil Greenberg - electric guitar, Bruce Barthold - bass guitar (ex-Country Joe) and John Marshall - drums (Soft Machine).

The cult movie "Easy Rider" was due to be released so I came up with a few vaguely relevant lyrics and we presented it to United Artists. Of course it was never taken up. Years later journalist Nigel Cross heard about the session, he contacted Pierre and released the demo on his "Shagrat" label.

If you'd like to buy a copy I have a few left!
