I've just created a brand new page in KinemaGigz.com
This entire page is dedicated to Mrs. Morag Graham who collected 35 pages of wonderful autographs in 1965 when she worked in The Candy Bar inside the Kinema Ballroom.
My sincere thanks to Morag herself for her foresight and permission and to her son Alistair Graham for contacting me to arrange to lend me the autograph collection. I am greatly indebted to them both for their generosity in allowing me to borrow, scan, display and share this historical document.
Please note some of the signatures are indecipherable and are therefore, at best, my best guess. Also some of the musicians' names are missing and we can't know (almost 50 years on at the time of constructing this page) whether these missing ones didn't play that night, weren't around when Morag asked or whether they didn't like to sign stuff at all. There are also some which don't make sense ("Buddy Ebsen" from 'The Beverly Hillbillies' and 'Barnaby Jones' for example) - Why was Buddy Ebsen at The Kinema in 1965?! Who knows!? Alistair tells me the autograph book was always left at the KB and so he must have been there.
Anyhoo, check out this fascinating collection and please leave Morag some comments either via the Feedback page or on here.
Autographs include Lulu, Denny Laine (Moody Blues), Freddy & the Dreamers, Johnny Kidd & the Pirates, Marianne Faithfull, Manfred Mann, Adam Faith and many more ...
