Re: Nothing In Particular

Nice vintage RE's Mike, well spotterededed.

Yes, 'Oily Way' (Oly, Ray) is a Gong track, a catchy tune if ever there was.
This is 'Flute Salad' leading straight into 'Oily Way'.

Nah, no taste police as such, just public humiliation and a 1 to 1 session on the ducking stool.
