Mary's Miscellany (7)

Procol images from BtP and other sources, with new commentaries and captions by Mary Roussey

Handwritten note (not mine!) shows that the photo came from the Southend Standard on Thursday 26 July 1962.  I don’t know how I obtained
this news clipping, but the caption states that the Paramounts were awarded the "Play it Cool" rock group trophy.
This picture shows the line-up (Copping, Brownlee, Brooker and Trower) that reunited for one night in 2005

Your guess is as good as mine!

A concert poster/flyer of a PH Fillmore East 1969 concert.  There were four performances – 14 and 15 March and 27 and 28 June.
At one of these concerts Robin’s vocals were on rare display during his rendition of Crucifiction Lane

A Paramount ad appearing in … the NME (New Musical Express) newspaper…perhaps…maybe?  Diz’s bass is impressive!

And thus it begins.  Gary Brooker, Robin Trower, BJ Wilson (front) and Diz Derrick (rear). 
Chris Copping is not pictured here.  The Rolling Stones called The Paramounts the best R&B group in England. 


The Paramounts – Brooker, Derrick, Wilson and Trower.  Their first single,
released in 1963, was a cover of Poison Ivy by the Coasters 

I just have one question:  are Gary’s eyes really blue?

The Paramounts – photo from Melody Maker – 25 July 1974

Keith Reid and Gary, who is snapping (or unsnapping?) his pants ['trousers' Ed]
