Hi, I witnessed Patto in Norway on tour with Ten Years After in '72. Later I found the yellow album and the Hold your Fire-album. These are two gems in my collection. I also enjoy his playing on Ayers' "Sweet deceiver".
Only recently found this site. Thanks for the work you put in.

I grew up in southport but never got to see R and B inc . Can you put a link to an MP3 of Peter Abraham by Patto . It mentions some of the Southport characters from that era.

Great site , thanks.

The guy was a bone fide genius. His playing just blows me away. What a terribly sad loss to a music world that in some ways really let him down.
God Bless Ollie!

Absolutely Ollie's fan. Hold Your Fire is one of the best records of all the time.

Ollie, era mi amigo, estuvimos de gira con Kevin en Japón, se empeño en que fuese manager de Corcovado, pero no funciono. Me trajo a Toni a casa en la sierra para intentar desngancharle, antes de la gira de Radio Futura, yo no pude, pero el creyó que si podría, y cayó.
Me faltan nuestras discusiones sobre música y motos, nunca estábamos de acuerdo, porque su Guzzi era muy fea.

BabelFish translation:
Ollie, was my friend, we were of tour with Kevin in Japan, persistence in which was to manager of Bent, but I do not work. It brought to me to Toni to house in the mountain range to try to desnganchar to him, before the tour of Future Radio, I I could not, but it thought that if could, and it fell. I need to our discussions on music and motorcycles, never we agreed, because its Guzzi was very ugly.

1st heard in Atlanta, 1977 on the June 1, 1974 album. "who the hell is that playing the guitar?"

After a few years of reading about Ollie, last month I could eventually lay down my hands on a copy of "Hold your Fire". MY GOD, what I have missed so far! Gonna catch up, though.
Regretting this interesting human being is no longer with us...

I see someone on Ebay UK is selling a copy of the Guitar mag is the Terry Theise article on Ollie.
Phil Mangham @ 11:17am 02-10-2012
It was the same reaction I felt on hearing of the death of John Lennon when I first heard of Ollie's demise;absolute shock and total body numbness !!
I followed the exploits of Patto whenever they appeared at the Black Swan in Sheffield (or tried to). The then compere Terry Steeples(?) always introduced the band as THE Patto.
Why oh why hasn't a TV documentary ever encountered their contribution to the 1970's ?

Many thanx for keeping Ollies memory alive!

I was lucky enough to do professional work with him in the summer of 1991. We did the Callejones' «Al pié del Cañón» album, and I learned a lot from him. He produced the album and played some guitars, piano, keyboards and backing vocals. I did drums for the whole album.

In a few days I will send to the archive some pictures of that sessions, together with a tiny diary, something really short that tells the best moments we had.

Cheers,
Juan Javier Martínez.
Drums.

Ollie and I did a bunch of gigs in a jazz band we formed together in Mallorca. I still have a photo of us playing at a club in Palma. He was an immensely gifted person, and also great fun to hang out with. I sure miss him. He was my friend

Just listening to Monkey's Bum right now. Ollie is immortal !!
