father Michael was instrumental in helping his son launch
his pop career, Peter Jones reports in the June 10, 1967,
issue of Record Mirror. The story was also outlined in a
magazine comic strip.
THE Yorkshire band The Outer Limits can
thank leader Jeff Christie's father for lending a helping
hand to launch their career .. or £200 to be precise.
In fact, Jeff's dad takes a very close interest
in what the boys are doing.
Having loaned them the money to get started,
he heard them play one evening and realised they were far
more talented than he thought.
On his very next business trip to London, he
ran into record producer Dru Harvey and asked him to come
and see the group.
Dru also immediately spotted the talent and
potential of the boys ... and within two months their date
sheet was filled in, and they were recorded on the Deram
label with Just One More Chance,
one of Jeff's compositions.
