also on CD - c.1989, CBS Records. containing previously released 7 unreleased material.
my booklet has notes by Leslie Berman made in 1989 when the concert was issued as a CD. He says Pete stopped to dedicate the song to an old family friend, Aunt Alice Pollitzer. I'm currently listening to the track & can hear her name cos I just read it.
It also includes the original notes listing everyone who has influenced him, including song collectors whose books he has poured over. The notes include mention of his forthcoming 12 month world trip.
We (Bush Music club) have pictures of his visit to the club & I'll have to start bothering Bob Bolton & our webmaster to get them up on the website sometime soon in our newly (slowly) expanding history section.
