Jones and Williams and Leach

December 8, 1961

The third of Sam Leach's Operation Big Beat at the Tower Ballroom takes place this evening, after the Beatles play the obligatory lunchtime gig at the Cavern.  Davy Jones (NOT the Monkee, the black blues singer) appears on both bills with their backing.  In addition, singer Danny Williams, a black pop star from South Africa with a UK number 1 hit version of "Moon River", is on both shows.  (How different were the times, then!)  And they are anticipating their very first campaign to the south of England, Aldershot and LONDON, organized by the same Sam Leach, which starts tomorrow!

(Sam, if you're seeing this,  thanks a million, once again.  Without you, it might not have happened at all.)
