Long Ago And Far Away

Colin Aitchison, still shooting it out at Ned Kelly's Last Stand in Kowloon, Hong Kong, sent me this piece of nostalgia.
Check out Colin's YouTube postings for more musical memories including a soundtrack with photos of Jimmy McPartland at the Corner House, Heaton.
Local guys involved are Gordon Solomon (tmb), Roy Willis (gtr), Bill Brooks (bs), Marshall Walker (dms).
