NEW AMEN CORNER'S annual VALENTINE CONCERTS at the Amersham Rock 'n'
Roll Club have become a huge attraction and this one - with Special
Guests MIKE D'ABO of MANFRED MANN fame and CHRIS "Out Of Time" FARLOWE -
has all the makings of another smash success.
It might be the middle of winter but NEW AMEN CORNER will soon warm you
up with all those wonderful hits from the "Summer Of Love" era of the
late 1960s. Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair!
MIKE D'ABO almost needs no introduction as he fronted one of the biggest
groups to come out of the Swinging Sixties, MANFRED MANN.
When original lead singer PAUL JONES left the group in 1966 to go solo,
many thought MANFRED MANN would struggle to stay in the charts after a
great run that included "Do Wah Diddy Diddy", "Sha La La", "Come
Tomorrow", "If You Gotta Go, Go Now" and "Pretty Flamingo"
But MIKE rose to the challenge and with him on lead vocals for the first
time MANFRED MANN were back in the top 10 with their version of the Bob
Dylan song "Just Like A Woman".
It wasn't long they were notching up big international hits with
"Semi-Detached Surburban Mr James" and "Ha Ha Said The Clown" before
soaring to No.1 with another Bob Dylan song "Mighty Quinn".
The hits rolled on with "My Name Is Jack", "Fox On The Run" and
"Ragamuffin Man" before the group called it a day in 1969.
MIKE was also a songwriter of note, composing THE FOUNDATIONS'
international chart-topper "Build Me Up Buttercup". Another of his songs
was "Handbags And Gladrags", which both CHRIS FARLOWE and THE
STEREOPHONICS took into the charts.
CHRIS FARLOWE is a firm favourite at Amersham. He loves to perform here
because it's up close and personal. A standout performance by CHRIS is
guaranteed at Amersham!
He will forever be associated with his 1966 worldwide No.1 "Out Of Time"
penned by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
CHRIS's other hits included "Paint It Black", "Ride On Baby" and "Stormy
NEW AMEN CORNER are arguably the best band on the circuit, combining
top-class musicianship with showmanship in their colourful "Summer Of
Along with the hits of the "Summer Of Love", they play the big AMEN
CORNER hits "Bend Me Shape Me", "If Paradise Is Half As Nice" and "High
In The Sky".
