"Manor Live" SteveYork's Camelo Pardalis. Virgin Records
This is an album I put together at Virgin Records Manor Studio. I was on crutches at the time with a broken pelvis after a car accident. It featured some of my favourite UK musicians including Graham Bond, Elkie Brooks, Boz Burrell, Rob Tait, Pete Gavin, Jim Mullen, Tim Hinckley, Mike Patto, Ollie Halsall, Jon Lee, Barry Duggan, Marc Charig, Dave Brooks, Mick Moody, Lol Coxhill and Lol Coxhill. Drummer Ian Wallace also played on the album but is wrongly credited. This record was a mess but it is an interesting document.
The name , chosen by Virgin Records, is Latin for giraffe. A pregnant giraffe was brought to England from Spain for the cover photo. None of the musicians were paid.
