Thank You - Parkedcars

I Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this post, a new gig with Ghost Town Brilliant Smile

And only 2 songs from the first album played, Mr Dammers, now That man was forward Smile

Just makes you wonder what the next album might have been like Smile

Thanks indeed, Parkedcars. I wonder how this has managed to stay on under the radar for so long?

I think it's safe to say that a third album from the original line up would have been much more reggae based than the previous two. Shame it was never to be.

That was a great line up for a gig.

I know they have taken a lot of flak over the years, and deservedly so, but think the first two Police albums are superb.

I have only listened to Terry's banter about sound problems at the start of this gig and the last song Ghost Town which is brilliant much better quality than the Canada bootleg that's been doing the rounds for years Smile
