Why was BIG SPENDER / BAMA LAMA BAMA LOU kept off from Radio broadcast? Was it the time slot they had...? It's bloody brilliant, they could have cut something else... And it's not that long either...
Also- apparently Paris Theatre gig was also broadcast. At least according to Greg Brooks' book... Yes- I know, i know... :) Was it really? Can't find any info about it...

Golder's Green: Was indeed time issues. Remember the band were not that well known in 1973.

The BBC "In Concert" Series lasted c60 mins. The Queen slot was c30 mins, (I forget who shared the other 30 mins). Commentary took up the remainder.

Paris Theatre was NOT broacast but was supposed to be, as was a potential Radio Luxenburg gig (another/or was it the same gig?). Neither took place due to technical difficulties.
