I played on Top of the Pops with P.J.Proby Orchestra on the radio show Saturday Club.
I was asked by the Orchestra leader Dick McPherson to write a couple of guitar instrumentals to play before P.J’s entrance, as a build up to the show, one was called
“Lost Soul”, the other was called “The Bongo Wolf” “Lost Soul”, had a further use in Screaming Lord Sutch’s, band The Savages, as a drum solo theme for Carlo Little to play.
I will comment more on this on the Screaming Lord Sutch page.
My time with P.J.Proby was an experience never to be forgotten; I thought he was a great star with a wonderful voice. During my time with P.J. I became friends with the other musicians. They were session and big band players and they encouraged me to play along side them in bands like: Johnny Howard, Ray McVay and Cyril Stapleton. This was an experience that can’t be bought because they were all reading jobs, which improved my status as a guitarist.
