The Merseybeats at Skegness – photos

The Merseybeats were another of those bands to come out of Liverpool. They seemed to specialise in soft melodic love songs such as I Think of You, It’s Love That Really Counts and Wishing And Hoping (a little incongruous for seventy year olds). But there was a lot more to the Merseybeats than that. Their EP with it’s harder R&B edge on numbers like Bo Diddley’s You Can’t Judge A Book By It’s Cover and Little Richard’s Long Tall Sally showed the power of their live performance.

That R&B energy was seen in Skegness where Tony Crane, Billy Kinsley et all put on a good show.  It was a bit strange for me to see a band that I used to like a lot when I was fourteen.

I'd like to hear from you...
