Hi there,

We managed John Grimaldi, and Cheap Flights in the 70s. I have started a archive of Johns music, as it doesn't deserve to get lost to future generations... he was a true innovator. It can be found here:

www.soundcloud.com/woodygsd .

These are free to listen/download... its all for posterity. There are around 60 tracks in all, and as you will see it shows the eclectic nature of John and his music, as it covers all the popular genres of the 70s. Pics are there too.

Most of this has come via tape, and from various sources, and we are slowly trying to clean up what we have (the technology exists). Thought you may be interested.

I have downloaded some MP3 versions of Motiffe, and am going to try a simple clean up to see what happens. However, if you have a good version, and would consider donating, it would be absolutely amazing (I kid you not).

For your information, as you know John sadly died in 1983 of MS. What I think you don't know is Mark Pasterfield, who played drums in Motiffe, also joined him in Cheap Flights in 1977 (recordings on soundcloud), but also really devastatingly died of a thrombosis in 1978/9.

Really really hope this email finds you, and makes sense.

Speak soon

Peter Colclough
