This is the fourth show of 13 recorded for export to the United States. The original telerecording, once catalogued with ABC at Teddington, Middlesex until 1968, is in the private hands of someone in the United Kingdom, and is currently being restored, hopefully for eventual release.

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.

The Marino Marini Quartet make their one and only appearance.

Pierce Rodgers makes the first of  four guest appearances in the series.

Crooner Ronnie Carroll, who had appeared in the first six shows of the series during September and October 1958, makes a final return visit for tonight’s show.

This is Cliff Richard and the Drifters last appearance for five weeks, not returning until 2nd May.

Track listing


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.
