Just spotted this:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0009SOFOK/qid=1124 112984/sr=2-1/ref=sr_2_11_1/202-7694684-7859008

 

A twoforone, plus at long last the legendary BBC Radio One In Concert session of 1972, with both Holdsworth and the late Ollie Hassell in combat. This is a very rare example of Holdsworth playing as a duo in real time and alive - too often his recorded duo work has been done as overdubs.

Thanks for that Dick. I have both the Tempest albums, have you any thoughts on whether the BBC collection is worth getting? Have you heard it?

I've reviewed the new album already EL, concentrating on the BBC sessions - Holdsworth and Hassell jammin' together, doesn't get much better for a 1972 recording. The BBC Sessions tend to be extended versions of tunes fomr the first studio album, and to my ears sound much better and looser
