John Purvis Backing Group

Do any of you guys remember John Purvis. going ashore with John (The Purve) was an experience. On many occasion we were roped in to acting as his backing Group as he went though his Al Jolson repertoire such as Mammy, Toot Toot Tootsie & The Red Red Robin. There would be 4 or 5 of us usually on one Knee helping him with the chorus.
Simon Cowell eat your heart out.
