This page is by no means a work of the mind, being merely a day-by-day chronic of a working Beat group. To make a comparison with television, when you have dozens of TV-programs dispensing the same logs, is it possible to attribute the source to one magazine among all the others ?
Nevertheless, the informations accumulated therein have been gleaned over the years in numerous books, magazines, CD-booklets, documentaries, films, pictures, posters, tour programmes, discussions, and lately websites, blogs, forums, mail and whatever, all of them dating from today back to the Sixties.
So we would like to thank the following people for their voluntary or unknown contribution, or for being the sources of important information which we may have found and assimilated or reproduced here in one way or another :
Ron Cooper, Zabadak Magazine and all its contributors, Roselouise Daly, Kevin Patrick, Richard Nash & Frogg Moody, Alan Clayson, Chris McLaren, Mary Payne, the Radio London website, Alan Field and the Big L Fab 40, Jempi Laevaert and his Radio Caroline charts, Bert van Breda, BR Music CD’s and DVD’s, Nigel Lees’ listings of all known BBC sessions, John Holman, David St John’s Memories of the Southampton pop group scene, Doug Hinman and his Kinks diary, Torbenskott’s Database of Top Of The Pops radio shows, Bravo magazine, Chr. Müller and his Bravo Archive Website, Jacques Leblanc, Jukebox magazine, Good Times magazine, Record Collector magazine, the NME chronology at the Skidmore College website, the Billboard Online Archives, the Marmalade Skies website, the Radio Bremen website for Beat-Club, the TV.com website, the Flavour of New Zealand website, Milesago.com, SixtiesCity.com, Jacqueline Ryan and the Trogg Times fanzine, Dave Edney’s toptwentyclub.blogspot.com, Markus Tolksdorf, The “Another Nickel In The Machine” blog, Il Vampiro Verdier blog, The Rhythm Checkers’ MySpace webpage, and lots of small and big magazines collecting Sixties memories, and lots of small and big websites recollecting Sixties life, and blogs and forums furthering the cause of the search for the lost Sixties, and all the people we may have forgotten, and the ones who were there to begin with, Ken Howard, Alan Blaikley, Steve Rowland, Trevor Davies, John Dymond, Michael Wilson, Ian Amey… and Dave Dee
