Last Fair Deal was an offshoot country blues outfit from the full blues rock band Wandering John c 1970. I first saw the three piece at the Coventry Arts Umbrella Club October 1969 when they played at the Transcendental Cauldron weekend of Underground Arts festival.
Above,1970, Last fair Deal played Pete Waterman's Progressive night at the Walsgrave in Coventry.

John Alderson moved to Saundersfoot in Wales in 1973 and formed a new duo which he also called Last Fair Deal with songwriter 
Piet Brinton. This was their card above and they entered the Melody maker Competition in that year - below.


This is a later version with John Alderson and a full band version with Tim James.
