Ollie Mclaughlin

Recommended Posts

There is a possible release upcoming of Ollie's stuff. It's not 100% confirmed but if it happens hopefuly it will do him justice.

I'm almost there with the research side of things on Ollie's story. It's been a long and at times frustrating trail but it'll be wort it in the end I reckon.

Regards,

Dave

Just seen with glee the feature on Ollie Mc . Only famous person that i've ever met. What a gentleman too.

Bought my mate and I (Steve Ray ) a few tins whilst looking through Bob Mays shop.

Three Baritracks, four Jock Mitchells,two Dena Barnes later, Ollie went out to buy

some more cans ! Having got " fed up" of pulling Golden World stuff and Motown

demos out, (you shoudn't get tired of that, I know, but I was only 19 )

Ollie took us to a bar,having seen what we were buying, said

"I'll take you to a bar where the Motwon Cats hang out,

He did, and we missed Marvin by 5 mins.!

Shit happens .

Just got home from work, pictures and signed recs to follow tomorrow.

Apart from my son and daughter being born, there is yet to be a day

to superseed that 19th July 1978
