:shock: How dare you!!! We are talking about God here. Never refer to Des in such a disrespectful way again. You've only got to look at him to know he was barely out of nappies in 1949.

Something from the American tour, perhaps? Failing that, I'll go with James Moody at Club S-G, '51, though your last answer seems to indicate not...oh hell, I don't know.

Well spotted and the moustache is a give-away in terms of the approximate date.
