The Magic Highway


Jeff's 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.
