Live from Brighton Polytechnic,10th February 1979.

I've just been given a copy for Christmas,who's the fella that introduces them?

*EDIT* It's always a good idea to go to the end and see the credits,it's Pete Drummond. Big Grin
Santa was good to Darran!
He's been a good boy see. Tongue
Some highlights from this performance for me:

- Pete Drummond holding up the Budokan yellow vinyl.
- Tom introducing Rick for his solo spot.
- Tom talking about the Budokan album and introducing Bun.
- Zander's hoarse vocals yet he still gives 110%.

But what bass is Tom playing?

I think Tom's playing an Alembic Series 1 8-string bass - the one he used on the studio version of Gonna Raise hell.
There was a net article that said it belonged to Rick (Pete Comita was later pictured using it).

 Thanks!
I'll have to look into this a bit more.
Do you have a link to support that this is what he used on the studio version of "Gonna Raise Hell"?

Not to hand, but I have read it in an old magazine.
I remember it particularly because I initially started looking for an 8-string bass because of that.
