The Swinging Blue Jeans had a residency at Liverpool’s legendary Cavern Club where The Beatles once appeared as their guests and, like the Fab Four, they cut their teeth playing Hamburg’s The Star-Club. The huge success of their 1963 single ‘Hippy Hippy Shake’ made The Swinging Blue Jeans stars in the UK, Canada, Scandinavia, Germany, Australia and the USA.

Terry Sylvester from The Escorts joined The Swinging Blue Jeans in early 1966, appearing on singles, ‘Sandy’, ‘Rumours, Gossip, Words Untrue’ and ‘What Have They Done To Hazel’ and the Canadian album, ‘Don’t Make Me Over’, before leaving to replace Graham Nash in The Hollies in 1968. Singers Madeline Bell and Kiki Dee guest on the 1967 single ‘Tremblin’’.
