Peter Lodge for engineering and scissoring (somewhere on front cover).
John Whitehead (TRANSATIANTIC) for being there and not yawning.
A.N. other engineer for blowing into the microphones.
Castle Photographic, Edinburgh, for again producing an exciting cover.
Mick Noble for arranging the concerts and selling the ice cream.
The Phoenix Theatre staff for always cooperating and holding back the fan.
The audience without whom this truly live l.p. would be truly dead.

Ann Dex our manager for promising us a holiday in 1978.
The hole in the middle for keeping this record from skidding across your room.
The HOUSE FULL sign is, fortunately, a familiar notice at our gigs today. This album is for the mad few who find room to give us-coffee to bring us round-friendship to keep us going, and ! whose houses, for us, are never full.
