I've seen them in a couple of occasions and that's been my view as well.

If I'd seen them in my local pub I'd probably have enjoyed them, but not really up to Cropredy standard.

Must admit I can't really remember them- which pretty much says it all.

The singer sounded like she should have fronted a blues band not a pixie prog twaddle merchant.

Enjoyable to a point. Nice to see Bev Bevan play congas and Clive Bunker take the drums for a while.

Hadn't thought of that...maybe that's why he played the congos rather than the drums in case 'is barnet fell off  Grin

Bev looked ancient the last time I ever saw him play (w/Black Sabbath, Reading Festival, 1983), although me being 16 at the time might have something to do with that.

Didn't grab me at all. In fact, the only bit I can remember is Bev Bevan coming on. The music just passed me by.
