Some songs from this concert appear on:

“We were on to perform After All and I mean growing up as a teenager and being into music, appearing on Top of the Pops was something we long aspired to so then to appear on the show and to find ourselves on the same night as Paul McCartney, it was all a bit surreal.

“His dressingroom was directly across the corridor from ours, so we just stuck our heads in to say hello and he invited us in, and we met Linda and three of his daughters – it was amazing because for me The Beatles were extraordinary – they were like the blueprint for writing songs.

“And then you suddenly stop and think: ‘We’re here on Top of The Pops and we’re talking to Paul McCartney – it’s a real pinch-me moment – it’s like something out of the Truman Show where you think someone is going to say, Your time is up, go back to your boxroom in Bishopstown’.”
