Thanks all for your responses.

Al, I’m going to bug you with more questions if you don’t mind…

What became of Andy Dwyer? Did he ever record?

I think I’ve heard that before, about the miners welfare clubs being bastions of country music. Anecdotally the ex-miners I know are mad country fans. I’d heard that about the discos finishing off the show bands too - I just didn’t realise some of them dealt with the situation by moving to England…

I’m going to have to confess my ignorance and ask what are road albums? Are they albums recorded to mainly sell at gigs?
