Thank you for the links. I am a big fan of the original line up.

They were the first band that I ever saw live.

I also got a chance to meet them
and spend some quality time with them at their hotel during their first US visit.

The drummer, Fred Marsden jr, was very kind and friendly to this eleven year old kid. He even invited me to see them again the following week as their guest. It was so sad to hear about his recent passing.

The top Of The Pops clip is pre-recorded, that's what they had to do by musicians union rules. The first clip sounds like it's being played live. So that could be why they sound better in the second clip.

Here's a couple of pics from The Wyvern Social Club, 10 May 1960, at ahe audition for Larry Parnes, and Billy Fury.


Bobber:
^Obviously no piano yet.

Ligger:
Excellent May 10, 1960 photos, Blue.

Are they using the Beatles' amps?
