1960's pop eh, did it ever get any better? - The Beatles at Shea Stadium and The Stones at Hyde Park, well this is The Four Pennies at Ewood Park (top that).
These local lads made No 1 on the charts, in May 1964, with their ballad 'Juliet'. It was their only No 1. In fact, it was their only Top Ten hit, though they did make the Top Twenty a couple of times after this.
'Juliet' still gets played on the radio from time to time and although it now sounds a bit dated, it's still a nice song.
To make No 1 in that particular year (1964), was no mean feat, when you consider the competition. The Beatles and the whole Mersey sound were dominant, the Stones ('It's All Over Now') and the Kinks ('You Really Got Me') had established themselves and the Animals ('House Of The Rising Sun') had also made their mark. Even Roy Orbison was back on the charts with perhaps his best known record ('Oh Pretty Woman') in this country.
I'm guessing this was a guest appearance before or during a match, rather than a concert under their own steam and as one of them is playing an acoustic guitar, I'm going to assume they were doing their hit, 'Juliet'
Does anyone remember this performance?
