For a long time I was hoping to find a live stage video of the Robert Palmer Band
from the era when we were getting ready to release Bad Case of Lovin You.

Amazingly, I stumbled into it on Youtube recently and thought I would share it here.
It is amazing to see my old ’54 Strat(now retired) and get the feel of that band.
That was a really pro bunch of guys. Robert and Jack Waldman are gone now, but
I had the pleasure of seeing Steve Robbins(keys) earlier this year.

In those days I played through a white baseman with a Marshall cabinet. Not too
many pedals–I believe I used an MXR flanger, a Boss overdrive, an MXR 10 band
eq and a Dyna Comp. We slogged it out that year in Europe playing making over 30
appearances in as many days. Glamorous–perhaps a bit, hard work? Definitely.

You might notice differences from the record. We flew down to Compass Point in the
Bahamas later that year to record the final version and do the Secrets Album.
