My first professional residency was here at Tiffany's Mecca Night Club, New Bridge Street, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne (formally known as The Oxford Galleries) as guitarist with Trevor's McDonald Clan. A wonderful Monday to Saturday gig. Each week we backed a different cabaret artist, one of which was the artist who made the UK hit version of the song "Seven Little Girls Sitting In The Back Seat" - "The Avons".


Two bands played back to back at Tiffany's. The other band was Tristram Shandy. Andy Kealey (gtr/vx) and David Bowley (gtr/kb/vx) are first and second in the back row. Arthur Sparkes (bs) and Peter Sewell (dr) had both left the group before this photograph was taken. I made the demo tape recording of David's song "Saccharine Sandie, Fingers 'N' Thumbs" which was released on Tiffany Records 6121 505 in August 1974.


"Saccharine Sandie, Fingers 'N' Thumbs" (David Bowley) / "Mr Blue" (David Bowley) released on Tiffany Records 6121 505 in August 1974. We recorded the demo for this song on the stage at Tiffany's, New Bridge Street, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in September 1973
