CHICORY TIP VIDEO AND AUDIO CLIPS

SON OF MY FATHER
Top Of The Pops appearance from 1972. Good quality video and audio on the most famous clip.

SON OF MY FATHER Currently Unavailable
Promo Video 1972 shot prior to a gig at Southsea Promenade for a foreign TV company.

SON OF MY FATHER
Promo Video (Karaoke Version) 1972

SON OF MY FATHER
Even rarer Promo Video but for some reason it's been re-produced back to front! The moog is being played from right to left instead of left to right and suddenly the band have a left handed guitarist. Confused? So were we! But the audio is good quality.

SON OF MY FATHER
This is a gem - an appearance by the original Chicory Tip featuring Peter Hewson, Brian Shearer, Rick Foster and Barry Mayger. It was performed on the 1983 TV show "Unforgettable" presented by Alan "Fluff" Freeman - our thanks to Rick for allowing us to use this from his private collection.

SON OF MY FATHER
This is a rare 2001 TV appearance as a trio on a Belgian TV1 programme called "Swing Palais" featuring Rick, Barry and Brian performing their number 1 hit. It's another gem from Rick's private collection and Rick sings the proper vocals which weren't available when Brian recorded the 1972 hit!

SON OF MY FATHER
This is a treat - possibly the last TV appearance by Chicory Tip who went to Portugal to appear on the Lottery Show performing two songs including their biggest British hit. Peter Hewson had left the band so Barry, Rick and Brian were the three remaining - Rick is miming to Brian's vocals on this. Our thanks to Rick for allowing us to use this from his private collection.

SON OF MY FATHER
This is one of the last performances of the original hit-making quartet - Peter, Barry, Brian and Rick. It came bizarrely on the Clive James TV show for Calton ITV at the end of the 20th Century with actor Liam Neeson one of the guests on the show. The band played out with a shortened version of the song and instead of the usual backing tracks, this was a live version featuring a band with horns augmenting the band.

German TV appearance 1972

GOOD GRIEF CHRISTINA
This is a real rare item - we think it is the only ever appearance by the original Chicory Tip featuring Peter Hewson, Brian Shearer, Rick Foster and Barry Mayger singing this song. It was performed on the 1983 TV show "Unforgettable" presented by Alan "Fluff" Freeman - our thanks to Rick for allowing us to use this from his private collection.

WHAT'S YOUR NAME
AUDIO: Remember those dodgy compilation albums on Pickwick and Contour in the 70s? Here's a Moog compilation with one of Chicory Tip's biggest hits on.

SON OF MY FATHER by CASCO
AUDIO: There's been some strange cover versions of "Son Of My Father" but this, by Casco, is stranger than most.

SON OF MY FATHER by GIORGIO
AUDIO: This is the version by the writer of the song, Giorgio Moroder, who went on to write most of their hit songs after that.

MAANTIELTA TALOON by DANNY
AUDIO: Finland singer Danny cut "Son Of My Father" using a similar arrangement to Chicory Tip's version but of course sung in his native tongue.

MAANTIELTA TALOON (remix) by DANNY
Currently Unavailable
AUDIO: Finland singer Danny had his hit song brought up to date and remixed recently and this is probably the most recent version of "Son Of My Father".

MAANTIELTA TALOON - THE ROCK VERSION
AUDIO: We have to admit defeat here. We presume this is a Scandanavian rock version of "Son Of My Father" but we really have not got a clue who is singing it. Do tell us if you know! We'd also like to know why the accompanying video of a road was used. At the start you can hear a touch of Gary Glitter.

HIJO DE MI PADRE
AUDIO: A Spanish version by (we assume) a band called Pelon Rock & Roll. Que?

GOOD GRIEF CHRISTINA by VALENTINA
AUDIO: This is the nearest you'll get to Bonnie Tyler covering Chicory Tip! Again, no info on the lady at all so if you can help send us an e mail.

GOOD GRIEF CHRISTINA by TONY RIVERS
AUDIO: Remember those great "Top Of The Pops" albums for 49p in Woolworths that used to bring you cover versions of the current hits of the time? They featured un-credited versions, but the man doing this version of Chicory Tip's last hit has been unmasked as .... Tony Rivers.

GOOD GRIEF CHRISTINA by MAX GREGER
AUDIO: We've saved the best to last!! Yes, a ballroom dancing version and it really does swing! This has only recently surfaced. Unbelievable!!

EXCUSE ME BABY by MAGIC LANTERNS
AUDIO: This was a hit in 1966 and made the dizzy heights of number 44 for the band. Five years later it was Chicory Tip's third single release.

I LOVE ONIONS by JACKI WEAVER
Now here's a surprise - an actual performance video of the song done by Jacki Weaver and Brian Henderson. Jackie is an actress from Australia and this clip is from Australian Bandstand TV show.

I LOVE ONIONS by SUSAN CHRISTIE
AUDIO: This was a hit in 1966 in America and pre-dates Chicory Tip's version of it by five years. It was on the same label as Chicory Tip, CBS Records, and remains one of the strangest songs recorded by the band.

I LOVE ONIONS by LAURIE
AUDIO: Signed to Decca we have no idea who she was, but here is yet another cover of this song for you.

I LOVE ONIONS by SANDY EDMONDS
AUDIO: This was regarded as one of the best versions of the song.

FRIEND OF MINE by DR MARIGOLD'S
AUDIO: This was another version recorded within a few months of Chicory Tip's version, and also was produced by Roger Easterby. Dr Marigold's were offered "Son Of My Father" before Chicory Tip recorded it and turned it down.

PRIDE COMES BEFORE A FALL by
DR MARIGOLD'S PRESCRIPTION

AUDIO: This was the B side to the single "March Hare" on Route Records and the B side to "The Lady With The Snake Tattoo" on Santa Ponsa Records.

I CAN HEAR YOU CALLING by
THREE DOG NIGHT

AUDIO: Here is the Three Dog Night version of one of Chicory Tip's album tracks from the album "Son Of My Father." Their version was recorded in 1969 from the album "Naturally" and was the B side of their hit "Joy To The World."

I CAN HEAR YOU CALLING by BUSH
AUDIO: This is the original version of the song later covered by Three Dog Night and Chicory Tip. Bush were a Canadian rock band and they wrote the song.

MARIANNE by THE EASY RIDERS
Currently Unavailable
AUDIO: This is the original version of the song which Chicory Tip covered in 1972. The Easy Riders Trio also wrote the song which won a gold disc and sold a million. This is directly from a 78 rpm disc and is fascinating to say the least! It also contains (if you can hear through the scratches) an extra verse.

MARIANNE by THE EASY RIDERS
AUDIO: A much clearer version of the hit song as above featuring lead singer Terry Gilkyson.

MARIANNE by TERRY GILKYSON
AUDIO: A different version again and this one features some rare images of the Easy Riders and Terry Gilkyson.
