Cliff Richard was bowled over. He said: “The atmosphere created by 10,000 audience inspires me to give my very best. It’s wonderful to be part of the show – but just think how great it would be to sit in front and watch it all.”
Highlights included “Gerry (Pacemaker) courageously singing (and winning acclaim for) the ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ ballad”, the “super-human drive of the Beatles” and “the happy personality of Joe Brown.”
Our man said: “It was a show that left the senses reeling…the biggest array of British pop talent put together in one pulsating package.”
