Asian paper The New Straits Times, April 1971.
BRITISH pop group Christie is said to have
an American accent and flavour and it seems the band just
has to live with it.
"Just because people associate our first
big hit Yellow River with Vietnam,
we have almost been branded an American group," said
lead singer Jeff Christie.
"But we're British to the core,"
The other two members of the group, Paul Fenton
and Vic Elmes, shook their heads disapprovingly as if to
lend weight to Jeff's insistence.
But the group agreed that Yellow
River and a string of other big hits with an "American
air" have brought them into the top of the pops in
the US and around the world.
