Waxed at Olympic in ’73 and Electric Ladyland in ’74 the former David Jones’ former squeeze Ava Cherry borrowed her beau’s band (Aynsley Dunbar, Mike Garson, Mark Pritchard, Warren Peace, and Herbie) for a platter of Bowie left-overs and tunes penned by then emerging singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen, plus geezers Roy Harper and Brian Wilson.
