About this memory

1981 – The band were given a budget to produce a second album for A and M London which was done at Jacob’s Studio in Farnham Essex. It was a live in Studio providing recording, accommodation, and meals. Since the first Album the band had recruited Peter John Vettese on keyboards and on bass Billy McGee who David had played with in the band Free Flight during 1978/9.

Ref no – 322 – 1981

During the recording of the Album on 9th December 1980 John Lennon was tragically shot dead.
Needless to say there was no recording that day.
