By the way, I don't know why Delvin Tyson gets credited with 'lead vocals' and then Duxie also gets a credit for just plain 'vocals' on the 19/6/83 and 22/2/84 sessions. This is just the information given on the BBC session sheets. Maybe to differentiate between lead vocals and backing vocals? Or maybe to get two lots of session fees from the BBC? The latter hopefully!
