Sleeve Notes

I first heard "North Sea Gas" playing on the radio, I like what I heard … Six months later I finally tracked them down. They invited me to a concert they were giving in the Churchill Theatre in Edinburgh. I watched the show … but I also watched the audiences' reaction as "North Sea Gas" played their hearts out before their "home" crowd. I knew then they would delight and entertain audiences where ever they played.
