Was looking through the footage of PJ on youtube - and thought it would be great if we could have a series of DVDs compiled of PJ through the Decades through musical performance and in interview. Smiley

I don't quite understand what you mean on that point DIRV.Do you mean Dutch Brand would collect all the clips from various fans & other sources of P.J. performances & interviews & then compile a series of DVD's for sale thru' merchandising? Starting with the 60's,then 70's, 80's,90's etc etc.?
    That would be one hell of a big job! Nice suggestion tho'.

Hey Ron,

That was exactly my idea - Dutchbrand are already working on providing a list of 'all known P.J. Proby footage' so as they are putting the effort into compiling the info anyway (check out the last paragraph on the houseofproby recordings and releases page) why not take full advantage. Wink

Hi Devil,
You are right that I had the plan to make a list of all known Proby Footage. I did start a few years ago, but sadly I've never had the time to finish it. Likewise with the illustrated life story on the House Of Proby website. Who nows, one day....
You're also right that it would be great to make a series of DVD merchandise from all the footage. We've had great help from Kevin in transferring all videos that are in PJs possession to DVD, so there is quite a lot to work with.
Sadly, there are more projects than I have the time for. I'm only one Manja and not a bionic woman. We could use some volunteers! Currently we are getting help with the Metric Music Demo Days double CD from Peter in Sweden, who is improving the quality of the tracks.
If there's anybody out there that would like to take on a DVD project, please let us know....

Manja,
   You mentioned the P.J. web site & the illustrated life story chapters.If you remember in July 2009, at your request, I wrote the chapter "Prime Time....P.J.Proby in the 60's." It was approved by P.J. but he did want the few lines about the trouser splitting incident to be changed to relay how he saw it. I did write it was a conspiracy against P.J. at the time but P.J. wanted to add even more about the promotor being paid to drop him & add Tom Jones.
   If that sentence or two can be added then hey presto it's another addition to his fantastic life-story.You could add the story without photos to begin with & then when you have the time slowly include a few rare 60's photos which I'll send when my writing is hopefully available to view.

Any DVD experts out there that can help Manja? 'Fraid I can't, I'm just not clever enough in that field.

Ron, the Prime Time chapter has to be rewritten completely, I'm sorry. Also it needs illustrations. I hope to get more time in Summer. Guess you'll have to be patient.
