Snips & Chris Spedding - Concert Hall, Toronto 12-29-81

This show was broadcast on Canadian radio. My tape did not come with a date but since The Snips album came out in 1981 and they are playing songs from it I suspect it is from 1981. The first 5 songs are all Snips and the rest of the set is all Chris Spedding. I don't know if Chris Spedding is playing at all on the first 5 songs. Except for track 6, the sound quality is very good.

  1. Hi, bat. Thank a lot for this one. Just a bit of info culled from - This show was recorded at The Concert Hall, Toronto on 29th December 1981 on their Music Breakout Tour, and was indeed broadcast on Canadian radio, though it doesn't say which station. The line up is Spedding on guitars and vocals, Snips (aka Steve Parsons)also on guitars and vocals, Jackie Badger on bass and David Van Tieghem on drums. If your into Spedding, his site is well worth a look.

  2. Styreneboy, thanks for the information!!
