The NDO with the late Val Doonican at Dickenson Rd, Manchester
He started is TV career in Manchester with this show - bet that his backing band was never bettered when the show was transferred to London !
A unique early stereo recording by the NDO at the Playhouse in 1964.
Note the C 24 mics on the sax’s, trumpets etc - these were very expensive mics, not in the normal kit for NDO recordings of this era. It is possible that this session was the one related to the experimental stereo recordings done by the BBC, using TV and Radio for broadcasting the left and right channels.
