THE BACHELORS SHOW at The Opera House,
Manchester JANUARY 1967
Winter Season 12 weeks - THE BACHELORS WITH THE STARLIGHTERS AND THE TILLER GIRLS - sold out!
'The Bachelors' summer season in The Futurist Theatre, Scarborough, where we record our Irish Album, 'Under and Over' in the dressing rooms !
It's a tight squeeze, but it sounded great!
|Decca wanted an Irish Album from 'The Bachelors' but they were too busy to travel to London, so the studio came to them! Sitting in different dressing rooms for 'separation' and fitted with earphones they recorded the back tracks, then put the voices on in another dressing room. One track was performed live in the pub next door to the theatre! When other musicians were required they travelled to London to the Decca Studios in West Hampstead.|
'The Bachelors' opening Batley Variety Club, 26/3/1967
On 10th Dec. 1966 The Bachelors were asked to lay the Foundation Stone for Batley Variety Club in Yorkshire, England. Sixteen weeks later they opened it to the public. Many great artists followed in their footsteps includingThe Supremes, Louis Armstrong, Shirley Bassey and The Bee Gees.(One of them married a waitress from there!) The club went the way of all the 'large scale' variety club venues and was retitled 'The Batley Frontier Variety Club'. now, sadly, closed and demolished. The Foundation Stone was on the right of the front door as you entered.
Amusingly, Dec's car, A Sunbeam Tiger [4.5 litre sports car] can be seen in the picture of the entrance .... he just left it there! Lights on?
'The Bachelors' - San Remo Song Festival triumph
The Bachelors sang two songs at the San Remo Song Festival, one being 'Proposta', the other being'Per vedere quant'è grande il mondo'. 'Proposta' came 3rd in the competition, but went on to be a No.1 record in Italy.
None of the other USA or UK artists placed! They were not popular with the other contestants? They had three songs in the final ten.
