  NELSON - The plucky foursome expand their muscal horisons. Where have they gone now? West? South? Who knows? they certainly don't!

  ALL YOUR LOVE - Travel is one of the perks of being a star 'rhythm and blues' band and here Lee heads the way to South Amaricay with a 'Rhumba' beat. Howdy Gringos! 4 min 00 secs, 3760 kb
  TAKE OUT SOME INSURANCE ON ME, BABY - Financial worries dogged the band in the early days, but fame and fortune has meant they can relax and plan for the future.

THE STUMBLE - As the curtain falls on this foursome's feast of funk, a final flurry featuring a fearsome fight as engineer Paul tries to drown the lads in a sea of reverb. Glug, Glug...!
