Coincidence that my Son in Law Anton has a Northern Soul DJ friend from Leeds now living in L,A, Anton mentioned he was looking for a good copy of “Meanie Genie”.His friend said it was one of his all time favourites and not only had the record but two copies of the NME 1964 one of which he kindly let me have. He was amazed to know I was Anton’s Father in Law.

MY 1964 “MEANIE GENIE” R n B RECORD HAS BEEN RELEASED ON A COMPILATION CD.  I WAS RE NAMED TONY BROOK BY EMI PRODUCER NORMAN NEWELL IN 1964

Daily Mail Letters  Published after the death of Little Richard my tribute letter.

So sad at the passing of my Brother In Law Graham Warner my sister Patti’s husband.  Jazz loving saxophonist Graham became a very successful Mecca bandleader for many years. His band was hugely popular not only because of the superb musicians and singers including my sister Patti, but also Graham’s injection of humour and fun into the band.  Later through the late 1970’s and 80’s he went on to be top manager of some of the biggest Cabaret venues in the Greater Manchester area booking many big stars of that era. RIP Graham!

Probably my best night ever since doing the London Palladium in 1973. This time in my own right. Only a little theatre but great atmosphere. Dream audience.and a sell out.

j bunny 003jive bunny 4THESE ALBUMS ARE ENTIRELY TERRY’S VOCALS AND MUSIC NOTE FOR NOTE OF XMAS POPS THAT HE ARRANGED HIMSELF IN THE PHIL SPECTOR WALL OF SOUND STYLE.  Would have been nice to have some little mention.  Many of Terry’s tracks are featured on Re branded Jive Bunny albums  THE LIP SINGERS

A generous review by Jason Birchmier gives credit to Jive Bunny unaware it is a one man album by Terry:

“Spectacular Christmas features Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers blazing through a whopping total of 32 holiday songs, several of them well-known. Some of the more popular songs here include “Blue Christmas,” “Silent Night,” “The Christmas Song,” “Jingle Bells,” “Deck the Halls,” and many more. But there are also a lot of fun inclusions here like “Ding Dong Merrily” and “Another Rock ‘N’ Roll Christmas” that are a bit more obscure. Nonetheless, Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers manage to liven up nearly every song on this album, making it a fun album to play at your next holiday party. This is lighthearted Christmas music performed in an invigorating style with few moments to catch your breath.

Other albums such as ‘Ultimate Christmas Dance Party’ was mainly Terry‘s Vocals and Music from Slade, Phil Spector girl groups, Righteous Bros, Brenda Lee, Beach Boys, Wizzard, Elvis, Mud. Terry created VOCAL AND MUSICAL traditional ARRANGEMENTS  ” DO WOP XMAS” Medley, “JINGLE BELLS”, “DING DONG MERRILY”, “DECK THE HALLS”.  His productions from his home studio and numerous vocal contributions at the Rotherham studios were featured on many JIVE BUNNY albums through the 90’s, Terry’s vocal and music imitation and home Studio music production of Brenda Lee’s ROCKIN AROUND THE XMAS TREE was included in WILL SMITH & GENE HACKMAN’S  ‘ENEMY OF THE STATE’ movie and credited to Jive Bunny & The Mastermixers. Terry only found out after a tip off by a Music Factory employee.

“Fanny and Elvis” A Jennifer Saunders film.  I received a name credit to Terry Webster for my “Ding Dong Merrily” . Arranged  Performed Produced solely by me but  credited as Jive Bunny. .

************************************************

A boast by Jive Bunny on the Internet of an album made up mainly of my contributions but without any credit to me for my “DO WOP CHRISTMAS” and other arrangements of Carols.Ding Dong Merrily , Jingle Bells Silent Night  Deck The Halls plus covers of Cliff,  Beach Boys, Mathis, Elvis, Slade, Wizzard, Phil Spector Christmas classics  etc…..>

Quote:“Jive Bunny‘s Ultimate Christmas Party has been the best selling mid-price album in the UK for over the last 10 years with sales exceeding 300,000 units,” …

Rather than search for a girl singer and backing girls Terry found that speeding up his own voice on reel to reel tape machine gave miraculous results where he could sound exactly like Brenda Lee and female backing singers leading to other covers of American Girl Groups.   To find out more about Terry, follow the ‘ABOUT’ link…. Terry’s album of 50’s and 60’s Rock & Roll classics ‘SODA  POP JUKE BOX‘ &  ‘IT’S MY PARTY 60’S GIRLS’ that demonstrates the speedy up voice thing, is now available on CD BABY.COM   itunes, Spotify etc , Tracks can be Licenced for Albums, Advertising, TV and Film.    He has a friendly expert and professional team in Mastermixer Mark Smith of Saint Productions and Tim Thomas Music providing excellent digital mastering.

Graham Harrison Leeds ‘buddy holly lives’. Hi Terry, I have just been looking at your web site, I have just obtained a copy of your Soda Pop Juke Box album,  If I didn’t know any better I would have thought that you had put your name on the original recordings,Being a Buddy Holly fan and collector I have heard lots of tribute singers both here and in the states and I have to say that you are the only one who can actually sound like him  and even the Crickets too.

 
Hi Terry I recently bought  your Soda Pop Juke Box  CD Play it in my car all the time.  attention to detail fantastic. I used to be in rock bands as a guitarist. Boy, do I admire your work. I now prefer your stuff to the originals! keep up the good work. >> mike bray
