Buying the albums sampled on “You Can All Join In”.
This time, more from Chris Welch’s 2008 notes in the CD insert, from where we left off last time:
“With no work coming in, Wild Flowers fell apart and Moody went home to Middlesbrough to study classical guitar. But an encounter with club promoter John McCoy soon encouraged him to return to rock.
“”John wanted to put a four piece blues and West Coast style band together. I was still only 17 and had been practising classical guitar for eight hours a day. But when John came to see me, I got my electric guitar out and we decided to put a band together with three other guys from his group, John McCoy’s Crawdaddys. They had changed their name to the Real McCoy but weren’t doing much.”
“McCoy knew Island Record’s [sic] boss Chris Blackwell and was able to get the new outfit a deal. The group was named Tramline.”
More next time.
