I was hoping for a decent live version of Apache, with Tony and Jet.
When they broadcast the Cliff&Shadows at the youth club with the princes, the boys are playing obviously FBI...but you hear a live version of Apache.
Never have I encounter a copy anywhere!
Hopefully on a future publishing....

Cheers Rob

There actually is a BBC live version of "Apache" from 1960 (so with Jet and Tony) on the 2012 double CD "Let Me Tell You Baby...It's Called Rock 'N' Roll!", which was released by Rollercoaster Records. The same double album features BBC live versions of "Quatermasster's Stores", "Jet Black", "Driftin'" and "Guitar Boogie".

I am wondering if there might be a volume 2 on the cards?

According to the list I have, Apache was recorded November 28th 1973 and broadcast on Saturday Club and the John Peel recordings included are (possibly therefore) minus this and Flingle Bunt, Dance On and Frightened City. Add to these the others just mentioned (and a few more besides) and there could easily be enough for a Vol 2.

I wonder what version has been used here. I was watching the footage again yesterday and it's Brian on drums. Further research places the Princess Margaret event in March 1962. However, it's always been odd because, as others have already said, they are clearly doing FBI and yet it's Apache rather clumsily dubbed onto the footage. Is it indeed the earlier live recording Ivo mentions above? Or did they play Apache at the time and use that recording? Unlikely because you'd expect to see the footage from that!

Somebody must know? :)

Rob refers to an early live version of "Apache" for BBC TV. If it's the version from the 1960 BBC radio sessions, I don't know. The forthcoming "Live At The BBC" album seems to be confined to BBC recordings made for BBC Radio, not for BBC TV.

The first time I remember seeing the Princess Margaret footage was in October 1964.

Granada Television (grrr!), in the run-up to the 1964 General Election, broadcast a regional programme about the (then relatively unknown) Labour front bench. They called it "The Shadows" (obviously from Shadow Cabinet) and started the programme with that very film clip with a Brian Truman voice-over before launching into a canonisation of Wilson, Brown, Wedgwood-Benn, Healey, etc). I saw it with a Shadows-fan schoolfriend and we both surmised (incorrectly) that it was a clip from the 1961 or 1962 NME Pollwinners' Concert.
