Did they share any thoughts on the show or the atmosphere?

Curious if there was indeed heckling, what was said, and if he played complete shows or not.


I believe his "complete shows" back then was about 5 songs, but yes, he completed the shows.

Everyone who saw him in the 50s tend to agree that he was far better during the 60s, particularly (for UK fans) in 1962 & 1963.

You can read Terry's account in the Lewis Scene at this fabulous site;

Thank you, Martin. Very interesting read.

On a side note... I'm surprised the media jackals that picked him clean on the first trip weren't there to stir things up when he came back the second time.

Maybe it "helped" him in that his 3-year-old son had just died, & all the UK media knew this.

Hmm so the media had some kind of morality once upon a time... :wink:
