The demos were recorded at Outlaw Studios in Dec. 1978. Kevin Rowland on vocals, Kevin Archer on vocals & guitar, Pete Williams on bass, Pete Saunders on keyboards, John Jay on drums, Jeff Kent on trumpet. Geoff Blythe on tenor sax, Steve Spooner on alto sax, Jim Paterson on trombone.

great to hear those early demos, a fabulous insight into one of the best bands from the era, its a shame they did'nt sign to 2 Tone

many thanks for sharing that. cheers.

Hi,

thank you for all theses good stuffs. Perhaps can you help me ? I'm looking for The Rings - Live at The 100 Club on 26 april 1977. The 8 songs was reissued on a Twink CD called "Odds & Beginnings" but unfortunatelly, it's sold out now. So if you have this recording, it will be very great to post it.... thank you in advance
