News: Rare Live Concert Recording Of Flash Featuring Peter Banks To Be Released

Flash release 1973 concert with Peter Banks.

Much to the anticipation of Progressive Rock fans worldwide, for the first time, a rare recording of UK prog group Flash, featuring legendary guitarist Peter Banks, from January 21, 1973 will be released on CD on October 29, 2013.

Titled In Public (2013), this historic and exciting concert recording features the original Flash line-up – Peter Banks, Colin Carter, Ray Bennett and Mike Hough in rare form live at Kansas City's Cowtown Ballroom. The show was taped on the very first mobile truck for The Record Plant. Flash were on the same bill that evening with The Byrds, who would disband after a few more dates. The shows were all recorded for the Lee Jeans & Cotton concert series – the first nationally syndicated rock concert series!

1. Small Beginnings - 8'36
2. Black And White - 12'23
3. Stop That Banging - 4'10
4. There No More - 8'45
5. Children Of The Universe - 8'43
6. Dreams Of Heaven - 24'54

The CD was finished by Flash crew member George Mizer and serves also as a tribute to the late Peter Banks, who passed away just days before finishing the final mix in March 2013.
Says George, "1972-73 was a very special time for me and my love for music in general, getting to go out on the road with one of my favorite bands was unreal for me, now 40 years later we are getting the first complete Flash concert recording ever to be released. Even with the loss of Pete Banks in March I am sure he would have been pleased with the Flash Featuring Ray Bennett And Colin Carter (2013) (review HERE) release - if you haven't got it yet you are missing a treat."

Three teaser were put together and you can see them below:
