Tony Bridger second from right.

Peter James Shaw…. Rev Stockdale first left!, Mr Drew Clifton next…!

Robert Searle….Paul Freeman drums,on the right. Fab picture.

Chris Baker….Wow! Tony Bridger!

Gaynor Duke… Dear old Rev Stockdale in that photo

Jane Hartley… Rev was in Index much later wasn’t he?

Andy Webster… Rev Stockdale far left and Paul Freeman far right. Who’s the guy in the middle?

Alan Esdaile… Still don’t know who the guy in the middle is? Is it possible the band were only a 4 piece and he was the manager or promoter?

Peter Horton… The guy in the middle is called Barry Jenkins as far as I can remember. He was the drummer when I joined them for a while in May/June 1968. The base guitarist was Clive somebody and at the time he was a hairdresser in a Hollington hairdressers just by the Blackman Avenue traffic lights. He used to cut and style the hair of the members of the band. I was recruited to replace Tony Bridger who was going off to the US. In the end he decided to stay and so I left after only 4 weeks.

Lynn Graham… Memories!

Peter Millington… That’s Clive Drew-Clifton

Colin Fox… Revvi on the left?

Alan Mitchell… The one in the middle is John Woolven he was the singer for the Springbeats before this group renamed themselves Morning Dew. The Springbeats line up Was John Woolven, Clive Drew-Clifton, Tony Bridger, and Barry Jenkins. The bass player was Tim Duke I believe.

Robert Searle… Freeman on the right

Nicola Dobson… Oh I have been asking about Barry Jenkins for some time and now I see him mentioned…which one is he as it was a long time ago?  I think Barry is second on the left..used to know him in 1968-9

Alan Mitchell… Nicola Dobson, I’m afraid Barry isn’t in this picture.

Gerry Forsch… This brings back some great memories, I never felt that there was any competition between this band and my band but good friendship. I was lucky enough to play with Tony and Tim years later in different bands.

Harry Randall… Remember Jonny and Tony (Vic) very well RIP Tony such a sad loss a brilliant guitarist and his black and white drawings were as good as a photo! i played with Tony for about 8 years a great mate!

Chris Jolly… What a GREAT NAME!

Andy Knight… I loved that band, so cool, or maybe hip then

Local group the Springbeats pictured at the Scout Hut – Oxford Road Rehearsal night 1965

Anyone confirm the names of the band?

Phil Gill….I think it’s Clive Drew-Clifton on the left

Andy Knight.…Tim Duke on Bass I think. Looked again, def Tim on Bass, in my year at school

Mick O’Dowd… The Springbeats played at Grove Road Youth Club Ore on my first outing as a DJ. It was the first Rave that the Club put on with a live band. I worked with Tony Bridger at G. Brookers in Norman Road making fireplaces when I worked there as my first job in the real world!  About 1966.

Alan Mitchell… Clive Drew-Clifton, Tony Bridger, Barry Jenkins on drums and John Woolven singer. I don’t think that is the scout hut in Oxford Road. We used to go to the group practices and most were in the Hollington Parish Hall in Wishingtree Road.

John Wilde… This is a great photo. Love those guitars.

Lynn Graham…. The drummer Barry ‘s  dad was manager and who remembers little Vic Bridger, Tony’s cousin, former owner of Hairtek.

Alan Esdaile… Here’s The Springbeats Nicola and I think its Barry Jenkins on drums?

Nicola Dobson… Thank you Alan…Im really not sure..he used to work for the laundry late 60’s and was in the Cult band he said as I did have a tape from him?

Lynn Graham… Barry Jenkins was indeed the drummer. I used to run around with them and was very good friends with Johns sister Jackie.

Prog Rock wasn’t just about capes and King Arthur on Ice you know…it was a dangerous sport sometimes. — with Philip George Thornton, Julian Jules Carter, Stephen Demetri and John Alexander Wilde.
