50 years ago in the Music Industry 13 – Disc & Music Echo, 1967-1972

First it was Tom and Engelbert, later it was Gilbert O’Sullivan, but in between came an unlikely and on the largish size American, Solomon King, to be adopted by Gordon Mills  and put into his stable, and who, for a brief period, seemed to adopt me! I’d be forever picking up my phone to be greeted by “Hi, Solomon here.” Memory has no recall of the reasons for his calls – probably beseeching me to add to the interview below. The headline is quirkily appropriate for today’s brief return of the mini-beast from the east!!

Looking back on these magic moments in the life of a 25-year-old, I now realise that a byline had to be earned, hence the two-month gap in these postings and my brain having no memory of any article with no byline having been my work!
