Part of the Gosport Easter Festival. The opener was Tony McManus, then OBD and headliners were Iron Horse. I have already posted the Iron Horse set some time ago (Old Blind Dogs & Tony joined them for the encore). This is what most consider to be the classic OBD line up. At the time (in fact, any time) it would be hard to imagine a better bill. Let me know if a re-seed of Iron Horse is needed, or indeed Tony's set.

Recording note: Ian's vocal is slightly low for part of Twa Corbies; the engineer suddenly realises and fixes it quite quickly.
