P J Proby caused a sensation in 1964/1965 when he broke big in Britain.He had previously sang demo discs for Elvis Presley and a lot of Presleys style could be found in his performances.His records "Hold Me" "Somwhere" and "I Apologise" soared up the British charts.That was until his trousers split on stage and revealed more than they were supposed to and promotors and T.V companies were not prepared to take the risk with him.
Proby's 1960's performances are so rare to find on film and although some of the performances here are not all of the highest quality all abr one are totally watchable.
19 1960's song and interview performances plus a few 70's/80's/90's performances.Some numbers are featured more than once but in different shows.

Great DVD featuring clips by a singer who most people thought would be the new King when he emerged in April 1964 on the "Around The Beatles" TV show. In 1965 he split his trousers a few times on British theatre stages & got banned. This held back his career. In 2014 he was still going strong & at 76 he looked & sounded wonderful onstage. This DVD is full of lovely clips from his younger days ending with his "Barrymore" appearance in 1995.P.J. is on facebook & has a great web site also.
