ABC CATALOGUE SHOW NUMBER 3. (of 13)

RESIDENT WEEKLY BAND & PERFORMERS:

The Vernons Girls.

THIS WEEK'S SPECIAL GUESTS:
'Cuddly' Dudley
Dickie Valentine
Gerry Dorsey
Marty Wilde
Tony Sheridan

This is the third show of 13 recorded for export to the United States. It is probable that this original telerecording, once catalogued with ABC at Teddington, Middlesex until 1968, may be in the private hands of someone in the United Kingdom.

Also some of the 13 copies sent to America are known to exist and in the possession of a private collector in Arizona or New Mexico.

Cuddly Dudley returns for his 15th appearance in the series. His beaming smile and exuberant dancing made him an all-time favourite with “Oh Boy!” viewers. In total he would make 19 appearances (just one less than Cliff!) in addition to the two trial broadcasts back in June 1958.

Gerry Dorsey (Engelbert Humperdink) returns for his second and final time. He had first appeared on the 21st February edition.

HIT AND MISS: THE STORY OF THE JOHN BARRY SEVEN

HitAndMiss 1000

Thoroughly and painstakingly researched over a number of years, it features contributions from several ex-members of the band and from friends and relatives of John Barry.

Comprising of over 360 pages, it is packed with an array of rare photos of the band, and the singers they often supported, as well as some unique images of memorabilia and documentation from that era; some never previously published, many more seldom seen.

Even if you are not necessarily a devotee of The John Barry Seven per se, the book offers a fascinating historical insight into the British music scene of the period and, more importantly, provides an essential read for anybody remotely interested in discovering more about John Barry’s formative career.

The book’s cover price is £30, but anybody ordering direct from us will receive a 33% discount, reducing the cost to £19.99.
