2. Muleskinner Jones - Come Inside, Stranger
3. Philip Sayce - Over my Head
4. The Specials - Concrete Jungle

Magnum, not played them in a long while, they were a local band to us and saw them numerous times before the release of K O M, were always the local band that were going to make it from that time, there were other really good bands , Jameson Raid, The Handsome Beasts, Big Daisy, Quartz and Cryer but Magnum were the more polished professional outfit. Saw Catley pass out from exhaustion around the time of the release of the album because of the work load trying to promote it, was always a decent fella to talk to after a show.

I believe Soldier On The Line was one they did in the early days, then dropped , it was reinvented for the CtD album.
Not sure if it's correct or was an urban myth.

Fire of unknown origin in your collection Muppet. BOC always better than Zep for me and one of my earliest fav bands from around 75. Hell I even enjoy Mirrors from time to time.

I didn't come into BOC until the 80's.

When living in Coventry in the early 80's a friend had a spare ticket to see them at Birmingham Odeon (must have been 82 or 83) on the tour to promote the Revolution by Night album, so I went along and thought they were great. Buck Dharma was fantastic.

So after that dipped into their back (70's) catalogue..........one of my favourites is the Astronomy version off the Some Enchanted Evening live album (great album cover as well).

Birmingham Odeon is still my all time favourite music venue, sad day when it closed.

From what I can recall it was a top venue Ges.

When I lived up there as well as BOC there, I saw U2 (on the War tour), Iron Maiden (I think it was the Powerslave tour) and Ultravox - they must have all been bewteen 82-84

Great view, brilliant sound, great atmosphere. Saw Maiden support Judas Priest there. Then saw them headline and they were late, if i recall it was around 10.00 before they came on , they'd been to London to record top of the pops, didn't go down too well with the crowd.
Trying to run a list through my head of bands i saw there . There was a good few

Very under rated album RBN, love Shooting Shark from that. Astronomy is a classic, the version on SEE is the best, agreed. But it's trumped by the OYFOOYK version of "Then Came The Last Days of May" which is and always will be, probably, my favourite track of all time ..

Apologies to all metal heads

I saw Judas Priest in the 70's, awful band, god knows who they were supporting I headed to the bar as JP were dirge :beer:

I can safely say I have never owned a Iron Maiden album, they were massive but I never got the attraction :rave:
