On returning from a hectic two week Scandinavian tour and a three date gig in Holland the third session took place on 11th October in Pye No. The B side was a John Schroeder composition learned during the session itself with John adding the madcap high pitched vocal bits. Record royalties were however coming in from the Pye releases around the world which was nice to see as none had ever been received from the Immediate label releases.
Again, although the record was released worldwide, there was no significant chart success which in the pop business is what matters and what groups are remembered for.
At the end of the second year at Pye it was decided to try a fresh start and Klaus Voormann provided the direction by telling Steve that Manfred Mann guitarist Tom McGuiness was interested in doing some record production. And Mrs. The Estoril gig actually gave the group the first holiday that they had been able to take for about four years. Although they were working for about an hour and a half each night they were able to lounge about in the sun all day without having to travel anywhere.
Further recording sessions took place Mr. And Mrs. Regards - The Factotums - Mr. And Mrs. Regards (Vinyl) Tom trying to get the group away from the Beach Boys image that they had been given and a new and fuller sound was emerging in the studio.
With a day off on 6th March the group were about to start rehearsals in the morning when they received a telephone call from Kevin Donovan at The Place in Hanley a regular venue over the years. He asked if the group would help him out by doing a spot that night and also backing Billy J. Kramer who was booked to appear but found himself without his backing group.
A bigger rehearsal than had been planned in the morning was carried out in the afternoon and fourteen songs were learned in a couple of hours rehearsal with Billy and performed that evening.
The track was completed on 15th July in Pye studio 2 but remained unreleased. In September it was decided to disband the group as it was felt that without the hit record the group would just continue at the same level and it was also noted that lots of the venues that had provided regular work like Mecca and Top Rank dancehalls were closing down, converting to discos and bingo halls.
Released in Europe on the Pye label. Released in Australia on the Astor label AP 4. The Jungfrau. A great little cellar club venue in Back Cathedral Street in the Corn Exchange building excellently run and created by Alan Brooks who had been a joinery teacher at a school in East Manchester. The interior was timber built like a Swiss chalet which helped with the acoustics, Mr.
And Mrs. Regards - The Factotums - Mr. And Mrs. Regards (Vinyl). It was always packed as were most coffee bar clubs at that time and one xmas gig we did there our act had to be cancelled half way through as the condensation in the atmosphere had caused the P. The Oasis. The stage was the smallest that we have ever played on and you had to balance on the space in front of the amps to prevent falling into the audience.
One of their other dance schools. The New Century Hall. A great Manchester Saturday night venue which was another of our regular gigs, run very well by Ricky Dixon and Mr. Betesch senior. Excellent comfortable dressing rooms backstage with a little side room or cupboard which allowed access to the operation of the water closets in the adjoining toilet facilities. Once it was established which compartment a fellow artist had entered it was found quite funny to prematurely flush the toilet whilst the victim was in the sitting position, Rod Stewart being one such victim.
At the last minute Jerry Lee arrived surrounded by his entourage, walking through the front entrance and concert hall straight to the side of the stage where he peeled off his overcoat, stubbed out his cigar and Mr. And Mrs. Regards - The Factotums - Mr. And Mrs. Regards (Vinyl) to be announced on stage. Red faced Ricky was still mad and having a go at Jerry Lee who was completely unconcerned and looking in the other direction.
He then went on stage and performed as only he could, leaving the grand piano smoking. Beat City The Three Coins. We played there every Monday night throughout and early unless we were booked at another venue. Beat City was Mr. And Mrs. Regards - The Factotums - Mr. And Mrs. Regards (Vinyl) coffee bar cellar club comprising of a long narrow room with the stage at the far end which was excellent for acoustics. The Southern Sporting Club.
Located just off Hyde Road in Gorton virtually opposite the entrance to Belle Vue Speedway was this nightspot which I remember looking like a converted cinema.
We played there initially around October and the manager Frank Fean took a shine to us, not only giving us a lot of bookings at the club but also passing our name on to other club managers. Jeff remembers The Bachelors being top of the bill one night and arguing like mad in the dressing room but minutes later being on stage all smiles going through their repertoire. I remember coming off stage to be met by Gerry Dorsey asking me what the audience were like as he waited in the wings to be announced on stage.
The Domino and The Princess Clubs. They must have been owned by the same people as we always seemed to double at the two clubs and they used to advertise together.
The Ian Hamilton Organisation. Without doubt the best Manchester booking agent that we had was Ian Hamilton from his first floor office in Kennedy Street, just off Fountain Street. Initially he had Roy Williams working with him and was later joined by Chris Wright, who had been a student at Manchester University doing business studies and went on to become a partner in Chrysalis Records in Ian Hamilton himself was a smashing guy with a good sense of humour as we found out when he accompanied us to some gigs in Holland where he wanted to meet up with Dutch agent Jan Vis.
Ian always kept the date-sheet full, never gave us any problems holding fees back as a lot of agents were known for and was helpful in promoting the Mr.
And Mrs. Regards - The Factotums - Mr. And Mrs. Regards (Vinyl), taking the group photos and having promotion handouts printed.
They have great customer service as well. I accidentally misspelled one last name on our first book and they gave me a partial refund and had a new book out promptly.
The wood and pages are absolutely beautiful! I can't wait to have it filled with all of our guests photos for our wedding! Thank you so much! Very impressed with quality of this lace. Didn't expect it to be such great quality. And it was pretty long, I used them to to tie bow on the chairs and I was enough for 14 chairs plus I had little bit left still.
