A showcase for their third album for A&M ('Hard'), by the time these hard-rocking faves of the UK live scene recorded this top notch set back in March 1977 for a local radio station, they had honed their act to sweet perfection.

Acclaimed by many musical peers of the day, including Jeff Beck, AC/DC, Ozzie Osbourne - loved by fans - Led Zeppelinís Peter Grant offered to manage them Yet, history reveals these boys were just too busy having a good time!

But then they were Nutz!
