  • "More than one person has written in saying, 'How come no Big Flame stuff has been issued on Strange Fruit'. Well, the fact of the matter is, that Strange Fruit are quite keen to issue the Big Flame things, I think the members of the band are not averse to the idea either, but one of the crucial tapes has gone astray, and the reason for this is, as I've probably explained to you before, that for some time, though it's different now, all our tapes were kept in cardboard boxes in corridors, whereas things like Mike Read's Christmas programmes and the recordings thereof would be kept in lead lined cases in the bottom of some converted and disused mineshaft in the Home Counties"
