We are currently working our way through a new delivery of tapes in chronological order. This should date this track as late 1984 / early 1985 unless some dubbing was involved. Natural Wild have already featured but the Fanning session still eludes. Further details on this track would as ever be much appreciated.. We remain locked out of the facebook account – someone in authority decided we need to upload a passport scan proving us to be Mr Fanning Sessions so unfortunately that aint happening soon unless someone out there is handy with Photoshop?
