Nick Kent, New Musical Express, 18 January 1975

Which is a slick way of saying The Package Tour She Lives She Breathes She Is Reborn. You remember the Package Tour, eh kids? It prowled the tackiest theatres of the nation back in the 60s. It mucked-in in mucky dressing rooms. It darned its sox on the coach and made one set of mohair threads last a full 44 days. And it posed for pix like the one below. Well we welcome its return – and so we sent NICK KENT (weird words) along to explore the ramifications of the FEELGOODS/KOKOMO/ CHILLI WILLI roadsnow, coming your way soon.
