Disc and Music Echo.
The music paper Disc
and Music Echo presented its own special silver disc to
Christie when the band sold 250,000 copies of Yellow
River. To celebrate the event, the management of
Christie invited the Disc staff to a special luncheon at
London's swish Grosvenor Hotel.
Pictured here are (top) Mike Blakley,
Mike Ledgerwood, Jeff Christie, Vic Elmes, Gavin Petrie
and (bottom) Johnnie Walker, Penny Valentine and
Out of courtesy, the band also invited the movers and shakers
at CBS Records to the function, all of whom had to share
the obligatory cigar and glass of expensive brandy.
