Coming later in July on this site: selected podcasts of Geo’s radio show. – Manny’s Music Store NYC – after flying in, the first task was to get some back-line gear sorted out. It was the time of BIG speaker stacks all for instruments except drums. I decided to go for a compact backline to pump through a decent PA and mix it from the front. Of course, at that time we played small gigs so we didn’t need huge PA and often the venue had its own PA (of variable quality) so I just schlepped the backline, drums, piano and guitars. Worked well especially as it was mostly just me and a hired Econoline van. The band personnel at that time were looked after on tour by Benji Foot, who was also based in West London.Amazing that we didn’t loose stuff whilst moving gear in and out of venues. Mike Batlin from Springsteen’s New Jersey crew came out on a few gigs which was excellent. A thoroughly good egg but definitely a Springsteen crew member despite a posting on which claims he was working for Marley at the time. Another post claims that the lineup included Marley and Peter Tosh. I have to tell you that the Barrett brothers (Aston and Carly) were in the band, as was Earl "Wire" Lindo on keyboards and Joe Higgs (replacing Bunny Livingston for the US tour).More about the tour on a future Suffolk n Cool. I really don’t want to sound like an old fart living in the past which I fear I may well. Whether you’d like to hear more or you’d prefer me to shut up – please let me know or an audio comment via the MyChingo button on the shownotes page.  Great that there is a new wave of great talent emerging in the new world of digital recording and distribution. Linda Coogan from Dublin is a prime example.Where I belong – Linda CooganLinda met Eoin in school, formed a band, later came Darren. Gelling really well together, it was obvious they were the guys she wanted for her album. Together a year. Linda is a solo artist with band available at call.
