Early Practice Sessions

SPYKE (1970)

These recordings were made in Ian's Lounge - "live" and straight into one microphone, great fun and a treasure to hear Chris singing "raw". Sadly he passed away in April 2010. He's very much missed by all who came into contact with him.

Chris Sayer -
She's just Looking For You
The Days The Months The Years
Peter received a call at 10:30pm one evening in 1985 asking him if he could play bass on "She is Looking For You" that Chris had just written.
He eventually got into bed at 3:00am!
The final number, "The Days The Months The Years" again written by Chris around 1976 was recorded by all members of SPYKE in a friends studio. It was done in "one take" to give him production practice. I think he needed it but we all enjoyed the experience.
