  1. Not sure about the date on this.
    My copy is signed by Eddie, Rab and Mick, and is dedicated
    “To Diggery Venn, 15.12.82″.

    The Diggerys were the Binkies choice of support band at the album launch concert, at the McLellan Galleries, and the album was given to me that night.

    The vinyl label has the date 1982 on it.

    The Diggerys were Isabel Glen, Bill Sherry, Dave Platt and myself, John McCreadie.

  2. Thanks, John, for the info. Sorry for the long delay in replying! Yes, you are correct. This third vinyl album for Claddagh Records did appear in December 1982, not as was printed previously (1981). This photo for the LP was taken at Hill House, Helensburgh, on March 21st, 1982 by photographer Douglas Corrance. Thanks for your performance that night!
