Two of us over a glass of champagne - A concert review by Malcolm Knowles:

Please forgive a little self indulgence in this review, but the gig at Buxton coincided with the weekend of our 25th Wedding Anniversary. After flying back from a couple of days in Paris we drove through the wonderful countryside of the Peak District and arrived early (as usual) at this lovely theatre in what is a beautiful, if rather remote, town.
Heading straight for the bar, we bumped into Phil who could not really ignore us dressed in our full SAILOR gear. After a beer and chat we headed for our seats and settled down to see the band play what has now become a very slick, if still too short, set.
Then came the highlight of our evening. As Phil introduced "Karma Chameleon" he dedicated it to Eileen and myself and told the audience that we were celebrating our 25th Anniversary. We felt Phil then sang the song directly at us and we appreciated every moment. I had mentioned the occasion to Grant in Scotland, but for Eileen it was a complete surprise. THANKS GUYS, it was a very nice gesture and has guaranteed our joint support of the band for another 30 years!!
See you in Oxford…..
