as good as the musicians are, vocalist paul williams has a nice rich vibrato which only adds to the tempest sound.
btw - john hiseman was the best drummer of that era.

I had this on tape in the seventies. When my recorder collapsed, I lost it. Never thought I would hear this again.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I'd forgotten about this lot until you posted this. Oh Ollie Halsall was such a sublime player. Thanks for this!

Gracias desde Perú!!.... Tempest es una super banda ke deberia ser un referente obligado para el hard más imaginativo de los 70's, junto kon Uriah Heep.

Like Manfred, I had a recording of this gig, in mono, on the portable cassette tape recorder i'd press ganged my mom into getting me. It was the gig that introduced me to Holdsworth and as soon as I could save up the few quid to buy the album, I did. About the same time I swiped this tall cardboard cut out Tempest promo thing from Virgin Records in Coventry and idolised it. To my way of thinking, I'd discovered someone who to my ears was a guitar supremo. That was 1973, and I was aged 14. Around the same time I tried to get into a Tempest gig when they played (what was then) The College of Education (now part of warwick University) but was kicked out coz I wasn't old enough. I've followed Holdsworth ever since and now have dozens of stuff from the guy, including, somewhere or other, a tatty M&B beer mat he signed for me when I was 'this close' to him at a pokey little gig at The Biggin Hall Hotel, Coventry (it was an Arts Council funded gig and Holdsworth was playing with an outfit called 'Turning Point' - you don't hear about Holdsworth in 'Turning Point', ever, as far as I can tell.)

So there you go. I could rattle on. But I add this simply to demonstrate, hopefully, how magnificently grateful I am to you for having this and making it available. The most delightful thing I've laid my hands on in ages.

I taped the radio show in the seventies. My tape machine and all my tapes are gone since a long time.

Great to hear the lefthanded and the righthanded guitarists again.

Thanks a lot.
