From Dave Lewis' The Concert File (p291):
Peter grant recalled: "I was invited to dinner at the Russian Embassy and all the guests came to the gig. I think it was Landover... they all want to sit on the side of the stage. Jonesy then plays variations from Rachmaninov during No Quarter and the Russian guests are just blown away.
