First heard "Living in Fear" in 1974. Been an Ollie fan ever since. 36 years & a 1000 listens later Ollies guitar on that album still puts shivers down my spine. Brilliance !

What a wonderful site! I was introduced to Patto by a guitar player friend in 1973 and have been an Ollie fan ever since. You are doing the Lord's work here. Thanks!

Many, many years ago I met in Mallorca a spanish guy who was a drummer. He played in a band with Kevin Ayers, Ollie Halsall and Nico, the legendary keybordplayer of the Velvet Undergound. He invited us for a try-out in a local discoteque. It was incredible !! I'll never forget this......

In 1974 I was a young Roxy Music fan so I went to the Manchester Free Trade Hall to see Kevin Ayers only because Eno was on the bill. I left the concert absolutely amazed by a guy playing a white SG. When playing the June 1 album I still remember back to that Manchester gig, and 35 years later Ollie still remains the best guitarist I ever saw live.

I used to watch Patto regularly in The Greyhound, Fulham Palace Road in the early 70's. A great band, underrated in their lifetime. Ollie was a brilliant distinctive guitarist.

as a former chicagoan i still have 3 copies of the first patto lp releassed on the chicago based mercury record!!
ollie's guitar on loud green song and piano on turn turtle are quite possibly a few of musics most sublime moments ever

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.
