First things first - some people may have missed the torrent I uploaded yesterday of Vic at Ronnie Scott's in 1982 as there were some problems that prevented it appearing straight away. Do grab that one if you can as it's great. It's at

Now, this one is a real obscurity. From 1983 till the start of the '90s, Vic Godard largely quit music. His only appearances during this time were a radio session and (coming next!) gig in 1986, to promote the belated release of the 'T.R.O.U.B.L.E.' album.

Vic's in fine voice for this live Gary Crowley session for Capital Radio, offering up robust versions of one song apiece from the three albums he'd made up to that point, plus a great version of the Sinatra standard 'All of Me'. Unfortunately there's quite a drop in quality for this final song - not quite sure why.

The identity of the backing musicians is a mystery - anyone know who might be on this one?
