Strange and Rare - Cover Song by The Phantoms

The Phantoms were not known for 'cover' songs - they had so many original tunes, covers were not really an option. In 1980 they added 3 covers to their set list, Shapes of Things - Yardbirds, We Gotta Get Outta This Place - The Animals and... Direct from the secret vault comes a very rare cover of a Fleetwood Mac song by Peter Green. This is the Phantoms as a 3-piece.
