Carol Kidd in Jarrow (on LP)

Browsing through some vinyl in a Jarrow charity shop I discovered, amid the acres of Jim Reeves and Val Doonican, a Carol Kidd LP "I'm Glad We Met". There was no good reason for me to fork out the modest 99p it cost as I already had it on tape but I prefer LPs to tapes (and quite often to CD) so buy it I did. It's a great disc with sympathetic backing by Dave Newton, Dave Green and the late Alan Ganley. They're all good tracks, especially Carol's version of "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out to Dry" and Dave Newton's solo on "You're Awful" is anything but!
However, the reason I'm posting this is because it is signed by Carol - "Best wishes to Ian and Christine."
I'm curious to know who Ian and Christine are and why they dispensed with such a treasured item. I know they could have replaced it with a CD but that wouldn't have the autograph on. If they are out there I'd love to hear from them.
