Re: tour dates 1973-1980
about the date 11 may 1973 at Northstaff Poly:
....First time I remember seeing the 115 was with Bob Marley in 1973 when we booked him for our Rag Ball at North Staffs Poly as support for Roy Woods Wizard (who used an RSD PA). The 215 had been around for a couple of years before this - it was Dave Martin's first big entry into the world of PA - and Pink Floyd used them from 1973 onwards (they weren't bothered by their size due to the venues they were playing - rumour has it that the roadie tasked with setting up their early quad system could lift a 215 bin on his back and carry it up stairs). The 215 was also used in the Rank Sundown clubs (Edmonton, Brixton & Charing Cross Road - which I used to frequent) - the' 40 years of Martin' mentions how this was a seminal installation for Martin.
