The following great footage emerged on YouTube Out of Nowhere:

P.J. Proby on the Hollywood A GoGo show, probably on 10 July 1965, performing to That Means A Lot. Presenter is Sam Riddle.

It's not sure which USA pop show this clip comes from. It's more than likely "American Bandstand" 24th July,1965.
  P.J. performed two songs, "Let The Water Run Down" & "That Means A Lot".
   If ever a P.J. DVD of 60's performances is released this clip just has to be on there.

Ron, Sam Riddle was presenter of Hollywood A Gogo, not of American Bandstand, as far as I can find out.

WOW!. Another great "find" that reminds everybody what all the fuss was about and why we are all still rooting for the guy 50 years later. Let's hope there's more like this hidden in somebodies vaults waiting to be found. Brilliant!!. :)

Yes I agree. New footage is always great to see.  Im sure Dave Clark has loads of footage of P.J. Maybe one day it will be released. Hope to see it in my lifetime. :D

On my list of P.J. appearances on U.S. television pop shows it says P.J. did appear on "Hollywood a Go Go" but only once ...on the 10th July,1965.It also states he sang just one song" Mission Bell".
  Looking further I then see that P.J. appeared twice on "American Bandstand". once in 1965 & once in 1967. On his first appearance(24th July,1965) he sang two songs "Let The Water Run Down" & "That Means A Lot".
   So I am just passing that info on. Whether it is 100% correct I do not know.I'll try & get some more details.

Voila....looks like it's solved. The guy presenting the Proby clip is definitely Sam Riddle. He definitely hosted all of the "Hollywood a Go Go" shows. I've looked at a good few other clips from the same series of shows & the special background etc. is exactly the same as when P.J. is singing "That Means A Lot"
   So even tho' the official U.S. 60's TV site says P.J. only ever sang one song, "Mission Bell", on "Hollywood a Go Go" on the 10th July,1965 they are obviously wrong. He did two & "That Means A Lot" was the second.
  An explication is possibly that this song was filmed but maybe never "aired". So 50 years later we get to see it!

On FB right now are film clips from 1977 showing Shakin' Stevens,Tim Whitnall & P.J.Proby chatting,rehearsing,being "made-up" etc. for the great musical from that year, "Elvis".
  These clips,in black & white & also colour have only recently been discovered. They are also on You Tube.
   Great to watch!

Thanks for that Ron, I've just watched it on Youtube. That's the first time I've seen Jack Good to whom we owe so much. He really does not look the type of guy who would idolise Elvis, but he also told us and everybody how good he thought PJ was saying he could be as good or better on his night.   I followed that up by watching a Shakin' Stevens documentary from 2012 and Jack also appears on that talking about the ELVIS musical after about 15 minutes, if you watch you will get one hell of a shock.

Another clip to watch is from LWT Television. circa 1977 with a really good interview from all three Elvis's.

Thanks George. I've watched the colour YT clip from London Weekend TV & it's great & excellent quality. Filmed on 17th December,1977 for the kids tv programme "Our Show". All three stars chatted well but P.J. was the most entertaining.
  Ron  :D

I saw Jack Good talking about Shakin' Stevens on the YT clip. I like him & I'm so happy he was the one that made P.J. a giant star back in 1964.
   Ron
P.S. Jack even appeared in one of Elvis' movies...."Clambake". He was an hotel manager.

Hi George and Ron, Thanks for the info on the youtube clips. I found the "Our Show" clip which was great. I had not seen that before.
Do you have the link for the Shakin' Stevens documentary ?

I've just watched the LWT clip again and realised the girl who asks the question is Susan Tully who went on to appear in EASTENDERS for many years.  Also PJ mentions having to sing songs he did'nt know Elvis had sung, "Mama Liked The Roses" and "Do You Know Who I Am". I've heard ' "The Roses" on youtube and of course he recorded the latter in 78 that's one of my favourite tracks, but it's a pity they were left of the album, were there any more songs that did'nt make it onto the album?.

"Witch Queen/ Do You Know Who I Am", great P.J. single released in Germany on the Lollipop label in 1978.
   "Mama Liked The Roses" is on the bootleg CD "P.J.Proby-Elvis The Musical", that came out about 16 years ago.

Frank Johns has done it again! :o
Frank has shared footage of PJ doing a charity show at the Liverpool Empire in 1994. I had not seen this before.
It is good quality 33 minutes long and shows PJ's full set.  A great performance by PJ  can be viewed on the Facebook P.J.Proby Fan Forum. Many thanks to Frank for sharing :)  I hope it can be also shared with the fans on this forum  ;) Best wishes, Dave.
