Either get it now or wait for someone like me to download it and make it available. Mind you I'm not sure if anyone will be interested I mean it's only a bootleg. tongue

Nice to see Flower Power in the spotlight a lot lately. It's high profile is, of course, totally justified. One amazing album! wink
Nice also to see the 'friendly' banter regarding various members' ages.
Of course, as a mere embryo, I find it all a little hard to understand. Ah well, time to go and train some more on the potty....

I like it but it's not my fave TFK instrumental. Others I prefer include: "Theme For A Hero", "Magic Circus Of Zeb", "Pioneers Of Aviation" and "The Man Who Walked With Kings".

Cheers

Could be an interesting poll there, 'your favourite FK instrumental'. Not sure if I could actually choose one to be honest. For me, Rumblefishtwist is right up there, a bit like a chimney sweep's brush, but nearly all their instrumentals are fantastic.
All those Nov mentioned are superb, and also with them I would include 'Dom Of The Universe'. Another good'un. And then there's 'Circus Brimstone'.... etc undecided grin
Today I played 'Live In New York, Official Bootleg'.
And it really is a fine album. Being a true bootleg, it shows just how well these chaps can perform 'on the night' so to speak.
Also played some Flanders and Swann, which a friend sent me recently. Just for some variation. cheesy
