National Flag were a major force on the London music scene in 1975/76.
They recorded one album,’Thankyou & Goodnight’ and this is it, remastered for CD from the original tapes plus extra tracks.

Recorded at EMIs Manchester Square , Decca in West Hampstead with Nick Tauber (Thin Lizzy Blue Orphanage) & at Fulhams Milner Sound (engineered by a young upstart called Julien Mendlesohn)

Only a limited number were pressed on vinyl and are now sought after by record collectors and music fans who want to catch the thrill and atmosphere of a classic London rock band, circa 75, in full flight.

This is a great album, National Flags ‘Thankyou & Goodnight’ is a gem.

Formed in Kingston on Thames, South London in 1973, an appearance at the Windsor Rock festival led to a UK tour with US girl band Bertha and the management of Tony Shelton later joined by CBS maverick & producer David Sandison who wanted to record the band immediately and capture the excitement . And they did.
Flag quickly developed a strong London following especially at the Marquee club where they were resident band in summer 1975.

Such was their live reputation they were invited toTokyo and toured Japan in summer 1975 appearing on TV& Radio, headlining the infant Fuji Rock Festival and opening the World Rock Festival in Kyoto with the NewYork Dolls & Jeff Beck.

    I have this record. It’s absolutely excellent and as RARE as any hard rock record out there. I wonder if this CD is from tape or vinyl?

    Its the real thing, from the original tapes plus three extra tracks and it sounds great.
    They were from Kingston and gigged mostly around London, Marquee regulars. Good band, Toured Japan in 1975.
    The albums quite special.
