'Top of the Pops' sets - 1970
Dedicated to Jez, who may find the backgrounds useful. You never know, we might be able to identify some Pan's People routines in this series of threads.
To begin with, three colour photographs of performances that, as far as I know, only survive as black-and-white telerecordings. I've provided links to the YouTube videos so you can compare.
The Temptations singing I Can't Get Next to You on the 15th January edition:
Are they (l-r) Melvin Franklin, Otis Williams, Paul Williams and Dennis Edwards?
Open in another window to compare the images:
Peak Position: #13
Repeated a week later, in the show where Pan's People danced to Wedding Bell Blues
An alternate shot of Family Dogg to the more familiar version I have posted elsewhere.
I think this is from the 16th April edition, on which they sang When Tomorrow Comes:
L-R - Pam 'Zooey' Quinn?, Irene Sheer?, Steve Rowland, Albert Hamoomd, Mike Hazelwood
Unfortunately, the record didn't chart and, worse than that, the performance is lost.
More about the group here:
Soon, I hope to start a thread for lost episodes from 1970, in the style of those I created for Lift Off (with Ayshea), again with links to records performed on the shows but with the added bonus of pictures like these.
