Hello Greg!
This was absolutely superlative! Greats showmen giving all from them. Real joy! Thanks for posting this material.
Regards,
Marcelo.

Can you believe this was broadcast on national television?

Hi Greg.I have had this for ages on video but i never knew the first number they played! Many thanks for the posting.I believe the Rapiers came second would you believe it?

Second is right, per Dave Lawes' note I just posted. I would have fallen out of my chair had this come on my television screen in 1991, amid all the dense grunge. Ha!

Totally agree with you Greg I would have fallen off my chair too! By the look of Melvyn Hayes he can't believe what he is hearing! Thanks for sharing Marcelo.
