The Brian Auger Quintet & the Rick Laird Trio: Fleeting Moments in 1964

Colin Harper, (Jawbone Books), 2014

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Rick Laird, who died on 4 July 2021, very kindly talked to me for Bathed In Lightning: John McLaughlin, the 60s and the Emerald Beyond (Jawbone, 2014) about a time long before he and John renewed their acquaintance in the Mahavishnu Orchestra, when they were both in the Brian Auger Quintet for a residency at London's Pigalle nightclub and also a short-lived trio.
