Fingers

Brief Fingers history … The band was formed in 1976 as a trio with Dave Justin (Guitar/vocals), Pam Dawson (Piano/guitar/vocals) and John Inglis (Bass guitar) as photo. When John Inglis left in 1978, Kevin Hart became the new bass player and when he left in 1980 Dave and Pam decided to stay as a duo. Fingers made their final appearance in 1983.
In 1981 a recording session was booked at the ‘John Knight Recording Studio’ in St Kevern, Cornwall to put down 23 tracks to help any future bass player learn the songs quickly.

These were all recorded in 2 daytime sessions with ‘hic-ups’ left in as the tapes were never intended to reach a wider audience.
During the second day’s session Ian Dunlop, an American musician dropped in and added some bass guitar to a few tracks.
Two cassette copies were made and twenty years later the recordings were heard by a friend who transferred them to CD and put together a ‘nostalgic’ double album called “Closing Time, Mousehole”.
