Really great news! I have just ordered my copy, at a total cost of 43 Aussie dollars, for delivery to Sweden. Three songs I havent heard before plus live in 1966 ( in television ?) - what a bargain! :-)

Yes, fantastic news. I have ordered my copy. I think there are four songs on this DVD that I have not heard PJ sing before. I have just listened to Sam Cook's recording of "A Change is Gonna Come". What a great song, perfect for the Proby voice. Can't wait to see PJ singing this and the others on this DVD.

Great news....my order is in. Have to admit that I'd never even heard of an Aussie TV show called "Bandstand". I'm amazed they still have the footage. I guessed that all old Australian pop shows made before about 1967 were just wiped as were lots of things on British TV.
   I'm still searching for lots of other old clips of P.J. mainly from America like "American Bandstand","Hollywood a Go Go" & "Where The Action Is". They must be around but still to be discovered!

"Bandstand" featuring P.J. is on Volume 8. They are also advertising P.J. being on Volume 9 but it didn't look right so I e-mailed the ABC company & they said that it's a print fault on their web site which they will immediately correct & P.J. is just on Volume 8.

Great news DutchBrand. I've just ordered my copy, and also today I received a 45 from Australia I spotted on e-bay.  Stagger Lee/Mission Bell. It plays perfect and the label is different from the british releases so this has been a good day for me.  It got me wandering what sort of chart success  PJ had down under?.

rockinjac & andy,

It† certainly should be working on a computer. The very best player, according to many PC-magazines, is the free VLC-player, just to download. It shows close to everything! Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login
† †A second option:† Here in Sweden Samsung sells a splendid dvd-player, to connect to any computer via USB, for 30 euros.
† † So you can certainly enjoy this aussie-show, which, I know for sure, must be great!

Yeah! got to be worth a try placed our order !

Post by Ron on 14th Nov, 2014 at 11:44am
Hope my old computer will play the DVD for me. Also maybe my proper DVD player will accept it. Final straw will be a small DVD player I have that you can easily carry around with you. Fingers crossed that one of the three options will work.

My DVD arrived today, nobody else has mentioned it so I'm wondering if I am the first?.  I won't spoil it for anybody but it's fantastic, the picture quality is perfect (black & white obviously), and PJ? I can't say too much but now I remember just why he blew our minds and we are all still in love with the guy and his talents. I'd love to be there when PJ sees it,  he really must! I think it will bring a smile to his face and think did I really do all that? I hope you all get your copy soon and   tell us your comments. There are three discs and PJ is on the third one. :D

Hi Everyone,   Yes I received my DVD today and will watch all of it in due course. But I did watch P.J. on Disc 3.   Absolutely bloody marvellous. Never seen this footage before and every P.J. fan this is an absolute must.
The best find for years. [smiley=smileb.gif]

Hi all, received our DVD today just watched PJ. WOW! I'm over the moon and "jimmyproby" is on cloud nine! spectacular performance of YOU'VE COME BACK apart from the ballads PJ. did some great R & R numbers, and a good interview with Brian Henderson.
PS. DVD worked fine in my Laptop!

Great that Aussie TV decided to keep all these "Bandstand"  shows in their archives.
  I wish that the Beeb & ITV had kept more old pop footage.They kept some but most tapes were wiped in the late 50's & early 60's so they could be re-used.
   P.J. also did some USA pop shows not yet seen such as "American Bandstand" & "Hollywood a Go Go". Hopefully one day they will be discovered.
     My DVD arrived yesterday. Will be viewing it tomorrow. :)

Ron, I really don't understand how you could wait two days before watching the DVD! I watched it straight away when we came home at 5AM. It's an absolute must for every Proby fan, as there is hardly any footage left from the sixties and most doesn't last longer than a few minutes. This really gives a great impression of a Proby performance, complete with knee slides and even a somersault!
It's absolutely amazing! What a unique find.
By the way, the footage is not from a performance for Bandstand, but it's the Melbourne Festival concert, which PJ headlined, with other performances from Eden Kane, Dinah Lee and Wayne Fontana.

Glad you're all enjoying the DVD. I agree with you rockinjac YOU'VE COME BACK is not a track I've played often but I thought he did it better than the actual recording. I said I didn't want to spoil it for you all but doing that somersault and carrying on singing at the same time?. It's safe to say nobody else ever did a performance like PJ and It's obvious why he had  a bit of trouble with the velvet trousers! ;D

Best & most interesting 1960's footage I've ever seen of P.J.    Wonderful.....what a performance he gave. He was/is The Superman of Pop Music. Sooooo unique & special.
   Magical triple DVD set with P.J. the absolute STAR!

Hello everybody ,

Itís a shame that we have to wait almost 50 years for treasures like this.
P.J. was absolutely fantastic , what a showman and what a voice.
Eden Kane and Wayne Fontana looked like shoolboys  comparing to the King himself.

P.J. is singing hysterical R&R and Soul numbers to the meaty ballades of his own.
Who else could do that kind of voice acrobatic and voice changeing ?
My favorite of the show is the Soul ballad  ďA Change Is Gonna ComeĒ  !

Iím saying  just like  Rockinjac and Andy Cole  : 
Iím on cloud nine ,  Absolutely bloody marvellous !

I'll start again....LOL  ;D. I did have the patience to wait two days before watching this great DVD of P.J. I waited until Linda had gone shopping & I was home alone with no interuptions from anything or anyone.
  I've only watched the 3rd disc so far but I will eventually watch the other two that contain Peter,Paul & Mary,Normie Rowe,Nino Temple & April Stevens,etc.
   The footage of Eden Kane,Wayne Fontana & Dinah Lee is brilliant but that of P.J. is out of this world!
   I've told Dinah about the DVD, I bet she never knew either that their "live" Melbourne Festival Hall footage was still around.
   With postage included from Oz it comes to about 25 quid.....that's for almost 11 hours of songs. I'd have willingly paid triple that just for P.J.'s 8 songs & interview. It's that good!

:P Received my DVD's today, nobody mention it, but they are "REGION FREE" so you can play it all around the world.
An other have to have DVD, fantastic. :P

Post by Ron on 26th Nov, 2014 at 6:04pm
Yup! it plays perfectly on my standard DVD player.
     I already knew the fact that P.J. is the most dynamic singer ever but whoever had any doubts just has to watch this Australian "live" onstage footage from '66. England won the World Cup in 1966......P.J. won the World later in the same year!

One of P.J.'s supporting acts on the 1966 Australian tour was Dinah Lee. She still looks amazing & just like P.J. is still touring & also making new CD's. Dinah contacted me for details of the DVD & has now ordered it.

Mine arrived yesterday just when I got back from Crawley! and I had to wait till today. Just have one word FANTASTIC💝 I was reduced to tears I have really not seen anything like it since the early days, it just reinforces what we all know he was and is the best🏆

Post by Ron on 1st Dec, 2014 at 3:12pm
On one or two of those 1966 Aussie/N.Z. tour dates that starred P.J. an unknown group were firmly at the BOB (bottom of bill).
  Yup! you've guessed it.....The Bee Gees. They went on to become massive world stars.
