Buy:


Most of the above titles are available on CD, often re-mastered, at: Repertoire Records
For other CD's and especially for vinyl you could try Gemm, but be careful with your search - "English Boys on the Love Ranch", for example, is NOT the IF you're looking for!


Notes
  1. I do not have a copy of Goldrock. It may well be a re-issue of "Not Just Another Bunch Of Pretty Faces" on the Brain label, just as "This Is If" was a Brain re-issue of Double Diamond. Any information would be gratefully received
  2. IF appeared on German TV's 'Beat Club', but they did not feature on any of the tape/DVD re-issues at www.radiobremen.de/tv/beatclub/ when I last looked (though a nice recording of the 'No Sweat' line-up of Blood Sweat & Tears does). Also, Takaaki Watanabe in Japan reports having seen a performance of Forgotten Roads on Japanese TV in 1971, but unfortunately not many of us had VCR's in those days. A small Flash version of that video can be found on the Media page. Gabriel Magno has told Miguel Terol that a video exists of the version of the band in which he played, but despite wanting to have one for himself had been unable to track one down when last heard from. Anybody with any information, please let me know; If were a great live band, by all accounts.
  3. ** These tracks on IF4 and Waterfall are identical, I believe; please let me know if you have spotted a difference. They are alternative takes of the same numbers from the session featured on "Europe '72", and show that IF was very much a thinking-musicians' band, not just a production machine.
  4. *** Those as slow as the author might like to know that 'Yessirrom Kid' pronounced backwards sounds like...
