TONY JACKSON with THE VIBRATIONS


TONY JACKSON with THE VIBRATIONS - 'Bye Bye Baby'/'Watch Your Step' (Pye 7N.15685) Sept 1964

Soon after Tony Jackson was ousted from The Searchers he got together a backing band called The Vibrations and this was their first single released on Pye in September 1964. It eventually climbed to it's peak of 38 in the charts and gave Jackson a small hit and exposure on teen shows like Ready Steady Go.

'Bye Bye Baby' is a cover version of a Mary Wells hit on Motown but this time uptempo beat music is added to the soulful mix. The flip 'Watch Your Step' was recorded by many 60s groups and could easily have been the A-side.

  1. Coolness. This was my first intro to "solo" Tony Jackson back in the 80's on a PRT 10" compilation of U.K. 60's Pye cuts, I think it was called "It Happened Then", back before Bam Caruso made it easy for us and put all his 7" tracks in one place!
