I cannot find a serious listing of Bill's gigs with Bebop Deluxe, does one exist? I saw him at Wakefield and Sheffield Polytechnic in the mid 70s, but would love to know the actual dates...

Have a look at this thread:-

http://www.billnelsonmusic.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=20696&hilit=be+bop+gigs

or you could pm KEEF1959 and ask him, if he's still around.

There seem to be several early dates not listed. I'll have to dig through my scrapbook & see what I can find.

I saw them at the Black Swan (the original line-up and as "funky phaser"), Sheff Poly, Wakefield Unity Hall/Theatre, Barnsley Civic Hall ( 01/12/74 - I still have the poster) and Sheffield City Hall.

Just what In needed thanks. These are the gigs I went to & have photos from

18/07/74 Black Swan
10/08/74 Wakefield Unity Hall
01/12/74 Barnsley Civic Hall
05/03/75 Sheffield Polytechnic
20/01/77 Sheffield City Hall

I saw Red Noise here in 79 and Bill solo at the Limit club and at a pub in Nottingham - I knew the promoter and he offered me a support slot to Bill but I lacked confidence - Vini Reilly got the job. How I wish I could make *that* decision again!

I've got cassette recordings of some of them, including a soundcheck at Sheff Poly where Bill was teaching Andy Clarke to play "Adventures in a Yorkshire Landscape" and was struggling to remember the chords(!) - I *nearly* offered to show him but was too shy. I sent a CD copy to Bill (via a roadie) to see if I could make them available (free) but no response.

The only gig I can't find is one at the Black Swan Sheffield in (I believe) '76, where they played a "secret" gig as "Funky Phaser & His Unearthly Merchandise" (subtle!) I used to have a small ad from the local paper saying "you know who they are!" but sadly cannot find it in my Be-Bop scrapbook

After a few hours delving, I've found the reference to the Funky Phasers gig, (it was stuck on the cassette cover) 23/07/76 and the set was

Shine
Life in the air age
Ships in the night
maid in heaven
Sister seagull
Blues shuffle in A
Adventure IAYL
Peace of Mind
Forbidden lovers
Terminal street
Blazing Apostles.

There's a picture here
