Delroy Williams – Soul Fever 78 tour with Mr Superbad



I was manager  of Delroy Williams at Mecca Agency and organised  ‘The Soul Fever 78 tour’ with Mr Superbad ‘Freddie Mack’ and ‘The Satin Bells’. Delroy’s still going strong and performs more reggae nowadays, as well as various movie and tv work . Including a spot in the ‘Batman’ film.  Really nice guy.




Pete Fisher… Amazing Alan. Although I spent eight years in the world of pro reggae I never came across his name, but have found out he’s a highly respected and accomplished artist. Amazing that you managed him, but strange that he was marketed here in the soul category, when he’s actually a reggae artist. His biography is really interesting, and apparently he organised the first annual open air reggae festival in 1966 in Brockwell Park, which went on until 1971. I also found out he acted in The Saint in an episode that seems to include a recording studio – I’d love to watch it but I guess I’ll have to buy the DVD as it’s not on youtube! Photos here…

Mick O’Dowd… Saw him on The Pier show. Really impressed as I was, and am, a soul man.

Andy Qunta… The Boys!

Jan Warren… Very interesting ……… and what are they up to now? 🙂

Alan Esdaile… Sadly Paul Casson is no longer with us but Andre and Colin are still going strong and keeping the posts in SMART interesting.

Andy Knight… Boringly I still every contract with the MC Agency for Shaft, and all the accounts. Thanks MCA, we didn’t make a fortune but we had so much fun.

Reg Wood… Remember their gigs on the pier.

Eugene Hughes…  I used to buy ice creams from Paul him when he had his business in Caves Road.

Tony Court-holmes… would you buy a used car off these men

Mick O’Dowd…  No!
