It took me back to1977 and the Scotsman Bar in Oslo with Joe Sharkey matching anything that Cash could do . Best regards, Bob Whittaker.
I remember it well, best wishes Bob & Hazel.

Hi Bob.

I still have the Johnny Cash Collection on two rather old tapes but my tape deck gave up a long time ago, so I have nothing to play them on.

Happy & Prosperous New Year to all Ex Houlder Staff.

Regards

Leo

Alan (Cuddles) Smith

Had an e-mail from Bob Whittaker telling me "Cuddles" had sadly passed away recently. No doubt many of the Offshore members will remember him with fond memories. RIP Alan.
