From the German
publication Good Times, July 2004.
A recent issue of the German publication
Good Times focussed on Christie in its regular feature on
artists from pop music history.
The article recaps Christie's origins and provides
updates on what the members are doing today.
The piece is basically a rewrite of information
culled from this site including the
observation that the group should have released more
singles from its debut album; the shift in direction on
the second album; the switch back to the commercial sound
with Iron Horse; the success
of Jo Jo's Band in South America;
Paul Fenton joining Carmen; Jeff still recording, performing
and writing the odd advertising jingle; and the fact that
Jeff recorded for a number of labels after the group's demise,
such as the Australian label Wizard,
a fact only ever mentioned on this website. It also gives
a plug for Vic's Christie
Again - Greatest Hits and More album.
Still, any publicity is good publicity, and
the magazine is to be lauded for keeping Christie in the
memory of its readers.
The article concludes by lamenting the fact
that no anthology of Christie material has yet been released,
as there would be plenty to fill a double-CD set. Obviously,
the editor did not read the section on this site which foreshadowed
the release of the complete Christie catalogue!
