about

Venues such as the Mayfair Ballroom, Newcastle City Hall, Sunderland Locarno (Mecca) and Top Rank Suite have become legendary in the rock history of North East England. Almost every major band played there at some point in their careers. On the bill supporting them would be Juice. We had almost become the 'resident band’ for these occasions. The tracks on this album were recorded live at these historic North East venues way back in the early 1970's. Considering the technology available at the time, this was not an easy task for a struggling young band with very limited resources. However, we are thankful we made the effort and are now able to transport you back to those great days and hear a band that was there, appearing at some amazing events with many famous names that have since become world renowned and celebrated in rock legend.

Track Name: Heart Made Of Stone
You know you don't love me
Why don't you leave me alone?
You know you don't love me
You never come on home
You're a cold blooded woman
You've got a heart made of stone

You know you don't want me
Why don't you let me go?
You know you don't want me
Why don't you tell me so?
You're a cold blooded woman
You've got a heart made of stone

Crying gets you trouble
Lying gets you double
Trying to do the best that you can
Gets you nothing at all
Persona non gratis
The problem with that is
You won't be satisfied
Till you see me crawl

You know you don't need me
Why keep me hanging on?
You know you don't need me
But you're just bad to the bone
You're a cold blooded woman
You've got a heart made of stone
Track Name: Reyrolle Days
We were all so young, not turned seventeen
When we started on those Reyrolle days
Bound till twenty one and we’d not be free
Spent those precious years in a shallow place
But I was just a kid, how could I ever know
What might lie in store along the way?
Much too immature to ever realise
I’d come to hunger for those Reyrolle days

They stole the dreams from you, took the best of times
As we stumbled through those Reyrolle days.
Taught us what to do, tried to change our minds
From a dazzling view to an empty space
But we were shining lights, we were young at heart
Not yet ready for those factory ways
So we spread our wings and we flew apart
Never more to live those Reyrolle days

I’m much older now and so wide awake
As I look back on those Reyrolle days
I’ve won through somehow from some bad mistakes
And the tears have dried upon my face
And though at last it seems that what I have is real
All my hopes were lost without a trace
But I still have dreams and I long to feel
The way I felt back in those Reyrolle days
Track Name: Lovers Make You Cry
Well, I’ve lived my life like a rolling stone
By myself and on my own
Travelling like my feet don't touch the ground
But I've let some people get close to me
Closer than they ought to be
And all they ever seemed to do was let me down

Lovers make you cry
Lovers always break your heart
Hold you like they'll never let you go
Then they tell a lie
Then they tear your world apart
Better if you just keep on moving down the road

Well, I've heard them say what I want to hear
When all my troubles disappear
And make me feel like I'm the only one
And yesterday's old broken schemes
Were turning into hopes and dreams
And then tomorrow all my chances gone

Lovers make you cry
Lovers always break your heart
Hold you like they'll never let you go
Then they tell a lie
Then they tear your world apart
Better if you just keep on moving down the road
Track Name: Remember
Remember when life was easy
And all we wanted was free
Remember when nothing could stop us
From being what we wanted to be
Remember when time meant nothing
And love was only a game
You’d know every face in a crowd
But never recall any name

Remember when all that we needed
Was everything that we had
Not caring who thought you good
Not caring who thought you were bad
Remember you’d wake in the morning
All ready to take on the day
And never let anyone near you
To stop you or stand in your way

Tell me you understand
Why it feels the way that it does
Tell me it’s not too late
To make it the way that it was
When all that you had around you
Was all that you wanted to see
Tell me you still remember
And still believe in me
Track Name: Jumble of Pearls
You got no gears, Woody, got no throttle
Cos the heat of the hand
Takes the cold off the bottle
You lose one game and it don't make sense
So you put it all down to experience
And you play out Dreams in the restaurants
And the Devil is there doin’ what he wants
But the moon is high and the mood is mellow
The elephant's white and the van is yellow

Well, I guess you’ve all seen my face before
I've travelled this world from shore to shore
Been on TV, been on the screen, been on the radio
I'm a real old timer who's able and willin'
I'm the Easy Rider, I'm Mr. Bob Dylan
I'm a Right Insider who knows Leonard Cohen
And I'm one of the Rollin' Stones
I'm a dream world rambler
An astral plane, eighth-time traveller
Cryin' in the rain sayin' tears of laughter
Just drenched me to the bone
I'm a daytime gambler
Who never, ever had a life of his own

You got no gears, Woody, got no throttle
Cos the heat of the hand
Takes the cold off the bottle
You lose one game and it don't make sense
So you put it all down to experience
And you play out Dreams in the restaurants
And the Devil is there doin’ what he wants
But the moon is high and the mood is mellow
The elephant's white and the van is yellow

I was locked in jail down in Birmingham
A victim of life, that's what I am
I got shot in the back out in Vietnam
And was left to die alone
I'm the Great Train Robber who's never been caught
I'm a nuclear bomber, gonna blow you all
I'm Edward Heath, the astronaut
Headin' on his way back home
I'm a real-life fantasy toucher
A lonely, drownin' straw-clutcher
I'm the Mad Movie watcher
Livin' his life alone
I'm a dream-far-too-mucher
Who never, ever had a life of his own
Track Name: Don't You Worry About Me
So you tell me it's over now
It's all over and done
Can't believe you could smile like that
Like a game that you've won
But it's time you were moving on
If I'm not what you want
Just turn around and walk out the door
And you're free
Don't you worry about me

And you find it so easy
You just turn out the light
I'll be gone from your memory
Like a dream in the night
But the there's no point in holding on
When the feeling is gone
If you're looking for someone
That I'll never be
Don't you worry about me
Track Name: Sounds Like Good Advice
Don’t like this modern way of living
Brings trouble every day
No matter which way that you turn now
Always someone getting in your way
The Taxman sent me a letter
Told me that I owe him a lot
How are you expected to do it
Paying what you haven’t got?
I asked my Financial Advisor
He said “Tell ‘im to f*** off!”
Sounds like good advice
No good trying to be nice

Woke up early this morning
Must have been half past four
Got up and looked out the window
Landlord hammering on my door
Shouting that he wanted his money
Rent’s way overdue
Turned to my woman in bed, now
Asked her “What we gonna do?”
She just yawned me an answer
She said “Tell ‘im to f*** off!”
Sounds like good advice
No good trying to be nice

The Landlord called in the Bailiff
And the Police are standing by
They’re gonna take all that I’ve got now
Gonna hang me out high and dry
Won’t seem to listen to reason
Won’t see my point of view
Thought I’d better ring up my Lawyer
Ask him what I ought to do
He said “If you want my opinion
You should tell ‘im to f*** off!”
Sounds like good advice
No good trying to be nice
Track Name: Leave Me Alone
Well, I just don't believe it
Just look at what you've done
You've put me in the shadows
And you’ve painted out the sun
When I was just out a-walking
Now you've got me on the run
You tell me that I'm crazy
You tell me that I'm mad
You tell me that I'm lazy
You tell me that I'm bad
Well, if I'm not what you wanted
I think that you'd be better on your own
Cos if you can take me or you can leave me
Then you can take me or you can leave me alone

Well, maybe I'm not used to coming first
I might not be the best there is
But I know I'm not the worst
When all I do is love you
And all it does is hurt
I can't do the right thing
When I'm always doing wrong
If we can't agree on nothing
How we gonna get along?
It’s time you took take another road
If you don't like the way it's goin'
Cos if you can take me or you can leave me
Then you can take me or you can leave me alone

I might not be good looking
I might not be so cute
I might not come to meet you
In a thousand dollar suit
But when I tell you something
Then you know that it's the truth
I want to make you happy
Don't want you being sad
I want to give you everything
I know you've never had
But no matter how you squeeze it
You can't get blood out of a stone
So if you can take me or you can leave me
Then you can take me or you can leave me alone
Track Name: Empty Promises
There's trouble in Boomtown
Things are not going well
There's a stranger in Paradise
And he's making it Hell
Doesn't dance to the music
Doesn't join in the sin
He just waits outside the city gates
But he never comes in

We don't know where he comes from
We don't know who he is
But he laughs at the people
Their red blood
Their blue eyes
Their black hearts
And their empty promises

There's a rumour in Boomtown
Yes, I've heard people talk
They say there's gonna be
An eclipse of the sun
Yes it's gonna get dark
And then there's the stranger
That we don't understand
He goes down to the riverside
And he washes his hands

We don't know where he comes from
We don't know who he is
But he laughs at the people
Their red blood
Their blue eyes
Their black hearts
And their empty promises

Things are different in Boomtown
Seemed to change overnight
Seems as soon as the city grew dark
Everyone saw the light.
There's no sign of the stranger
It's like he didn't exist
And though he'll not be forgotten
I know he'll never be missed

We don't know where he comes from
We don't know who he is
But he laughs at the people
Their red blood
Their blue eyes
Their black hearts
And their empty promises
Track Name: Everyone's A Star
Now you know that losers can never win
You don't want to walk that road again
Standing on the outside, looking in
Up against the bar

Never doing right, always going wrong
Waited for the light but it never shone
Always had to fight just to get along
But didn't get too far

Everyone's a star
Everyone's a star
Everybody's somebody's guiding light
No matter who you are

Feeling all alone when you're in a crowd
Talking to yourself as you think aloud
Wanna do some good just to make them proud
So you try to win their war

Flying in a straight line, looking back
Trying to get the best out of what you lack
Dying to put your real life back on track
And still you bear the scar

Everyone's a star
Everyone's a star
Everybody's somebody's guiding light
No matter who you are

Will you ever find what you're looking for?
You can't keep your mind on it anymore
If you weren't so blind then you'd know for sure
But life is so bizarre

Thinking being nobody is a crime
Gonna be a somebody down the line
Yeh, you'll be a big shot when it's time
So tell them au revoir

Everyone's a star
Everyone's a star
Everybody's somebody's guiding light
No matter who you are
Track Name: You Got The Blues
You're feeling lonely tonight
Your heart is in your shoes
Nothing ever turns out right
You always seem to lose
Feeling sorry for yourself
You got the blues

You're feeling lonely tonight
Can't make it on your own
Scared to turn out the light
Don’t want to be alone
How can someone who looks like an angel
Have a heart made of stone?
Track Name: Dream On
Remember how we felt back then, just one desire
Searching for a dream to set the world on fire
Never realising who we'd hurt along the way
We'd just close our eyes and let the music play
We've all done foolish things and been misunderstood
But living with regrets does no one any good

Dream on, think about what used to be
Never mind what might have been
Dream on, remember absent company
Imagine that they're here again

We’d fill the night with beating drums and loud guitars
We weren’t going to stop until we reached the stars
Never cared to listen to what others had to say
We'd just close our eyes and let the music play
But like all things before, we couldn’t make it last
Now there’s no going back and we can’t change the past

Dream on, think about what used to be
Never mind what might have been
Dream on, remember absent company
Imagine that they're here again

Billy called and he asked me to say what’s going on
I said “I don’t know, I think the magic is all gone”
Then he cried, he said “No, I just can’t believe that’s true
Take away the dream from me and what else can I do?”

Dream on, think about what used to be
Never mind what might have been
Dream on, remember absent company
Imagine that they're here again
Track Name: Downbeat and Broken
You’d have me downbeat and broken
You’d have me be nothing at all
You’d have me downbeat and broken
You just wanna make me feel small
But I’m through with all this talkin’
I’m walkin’ and I’m walkin’ out tall

You’d have me downbeat and broken
You’d have me get down on my knees
You’d have me downbeat and broken
Think that you can do what you please
But I’m through with all this talkin’
I’m walkin’ free as the breeze

Cos now I’ve come to realise
That all you’ve done is wasted my time
And the sooner I get outa here
The sooner you’ll be out of my mind

You’d have me downbeat and broken
Downbeat, down on my knees
You’d have me downbeat and broken
Downbeat, do what you please
But I’m through with all this talkin’
I’m walkin’ free as the breeze
Track Name: Mean Hearted Woman
You know you drive me crazy
The way you carry on
You tell me that I'm lazy
You treat me like a dog
You never give me nothing
You never show me love
But when it comes to trouble
You just can't get enough
You're a mean hearted woman
I'm only doing the best I can
You're a mean hearted woman
You need a cold blooded man
