I remember having the Kamikazi vinyl back in the day, have no idea what happened to it. But I do have the Iceberg CD.

Thanks Willie, I was beginning to think I'm on my own with these albums. I was too young but one of my brothers went to see a Deke and Man concert(Earls Court, Rainbow?) and Man graciously did the whole Iceberg album!
The biography 7171 551 is pretty good.

Song from an equally excellent movie( RIP Dodie Fayad)
Maybe Baker Street and this have the best sax breaks to make the charts?
Wesley Magoogan blows here and it is haunting!
By a sad twist of fate, Wesley lost his fingers in a chainsaw accident, making playing impossible.

In comparison to Big Log, this didn't make such an impression - shame, I thought it quite catchy.

Robert Plant - 29 Palms.

Re: *Hits n Misses*

He'd had his success with Cruel To Be Kind and with Dave Edmunds and Rockpile etc... this brilliant song seemed doomed for the vaults.. but a shrewd advertising oik saw it had potential as an advert bed...

Not a jealous love song... Paul Carrack discovered that his bassist had been 'double jobbing' with Sutherland Brothers and Quiver.
