John Priestley & John Clift

Talented local songwriters who self financed a lot of their own demos and  24 track masters at Misty and then  touted and licensed for release at Midem including 'Shootin' the Breeze' which was covered by none other than Billy J Kramer (Yes THAT Billy J Kramer) who happened to be living locally at the time but recorded his vocals on the demo in the 4 track studio in my garage !.

 John Priestley was also singer with the band Sails who performed regularly around Bournemouth but his records were released under various pseudonyms including X Directory and Cliff Edge . John Priestley subsequently moved to Nashville to seek fame and fortune in the Country Music market.
