Perhaps Phil had just read Synge's 'The Playboy of the Western World' around the time of the recording of this album, and during the recording sessions on Tollington Park would take a walk up the road to find a coffee shop. There was none to be found on the corner of SGR and Upper Tollington but he had a vision that one day in the far future there would open a place called Vagabonds. This vision was probably brought about as a result of the numerous people hanging round benches drinking what he thought was meade and as it was the early 70s there was a lot mind expanding going on.
Recorded in 1973. Wow. What was it like round here then? Anyone here from th times? Was Tesco here? Any pics? Chapter one? Chang
