• Stagger Lee (Price & Logan)2:06

This music by The Gentlemen was recorded live at various venues in the late sixties and early seventies on consumer reel to reel tape decks at slow lower quality speeds with microphones placed in front of the PA speakers and no one monitoring the recorder or PA system for balance or volume levels.  Please excuse the lower quality but these are the only live recordings available to Merlin Productions for these groups.
