    Reading an old Mojo this morning from 2011 while confined to bed with flu, came across an article on July and googled for more. Discovered your blog. Wow! What a goldmine. Great interview with Tom & Peter. Fascinating stories about about the Beatles , Oldfield, custom guitars and their lost classic album. Live clips really impressive too. Tom’s solo album sounded pretty unique, will have to check that out. Hours later still scrolling through your blog. Have to download all podcasts next. Thanks for all your dedicated hard work, certainly a tonic for a sickly old psychedelic geezer.Keep up the great work!
