Hi music lovers!!
This is the original 1979 version of "My Own Game" you can never compare with the poor version from the 1986 Land Of The Gun album!!
Often touted as Legs Diamond's lost fourth album, the tracks on "Uncut Diamond" actually represent what could've featured on the follow-up to 'Firepower'. According to keyboard player Michael Prince, these songs were all recorded live to a two-track unit and feature no overdubs. This begs the question, how much better could this material have been if time and money had been lavished on it?!
But by the way, isn't this song really fantastic compared to the 'Land Of The Gun' version??
Let me know what u think about this??
• Rick Sanford - lead voc & flute
• Roger Romeo - lead & rhythm guitar
• Michael Prince - keyboards & rhythm guitar
• Michael Diamond - bass guitar
• Jeff Poole - drums
"The songs featured on this CD were recorded live to 2 track in November 1979. This means that there were no overdubs, nothing was added or fixed after the fact. Had we recorded an album anytime soon after that session, these are most likely the songs that would have made up our fourth album!!
