  1. Thanks so much for this.
    I was lucky enough to see this line-up of the band live at the 1984 Kelvingrove Festival in Glasgow, just before Alan Reed got called away to join Pallas.
    They really made an impression on my youthful self with the scope & dynamics of their music.
    Took me years to track down a cassette of the album, but it's long gone now, so it's great to have a digital copy to replace it with.
    Many Thanks,

    1. Thanks a lot for sharing your piece of history with us BFK.

      It's always a pleasure to hear 'music stories' from other people :)

  2. As a post-script to my previous comment, i got to see Reed twice live with Pallas after he left the Ganz.
    Firstly supporting Uriah Heep in '84 & then opening for UFO the following year.
    He fitted the band's material really well & looked at ease on the big stage, and Pallas were a revelation onstage being far heavier live than their records suggested.
    A real shame that their record company lacked the patience or belief to get behind the band properly just when they seemed ready to break big.
    Thanks for bringing back the memories.
