Blind Lemons playing live at The Burleigh Arms, Cambridge in 1986. Blind Lemons were: Chris Gair (lead guitar, keyboards, b. vocals), Jim Gair (bass, b. vocals), Simon Sheldrick (drums), Sharon Durie (violin, keyboards) & me (lead vocals, rhythm guitar).

3 songs: 1) Leave Me Alone 2) Secret Agent For The KGB 3) It's My Mind

The sound here is pretty rough, mainly because nothing was mic'd up. The PA was just for vocals and drums, with all instruments from the backline - no monitors! I didn't know about this recording at the time - it was made by the sound guy (who occasionally plugs his services during it) with a mic dangling in front of his mixing desk! Still, it's a nice memory of those days to have.
The legendary Colin Hazell joins us with his tamborine for the last two numbers.
