road albums - the deal was you got a day in the studio.
you got two hundred albums to sell at gigs.
the first hundred you charged two quid a piece - the money all went to the company.
the next hundred were yours to sell for whatever profit you wanted.
Andy Dwyer is still around. He made a road album with Rockfield. There were other companies doing the same sort of deal....Tank was one. Westwood was another.
The Irish lads were fantastic musicians. They all had terrific equipment and stage uniforms etc - the Irish professional music scene must have been quite something prior to the 1970's.
