It must have been 1977 ... the album cover of Tony’s record was photographed at the Rainbow Casino. It was definitely Brian Holland .I worked there for a while dealing Blackjack .


Snooks does the name Alan Manning mean anything to you ?

Hi Townie - I heartily agree - great days. Of course it did help that there were no responsibilities , no bills to pay, no worries except about homework!

For me it was the 60s and never felt threatened. It is mad now with the drugs, knifings and shootings.     :(      :o

For me it was the early 70s and the Ringway.
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Just snuck in after a looong absence!  I knew Alan Manning.  He was the Director of The China Palace casino in Hurst Street.
