Blimey, Bill; you've got a good memory for details!
Wonder where Mr Mackay was? Maybe he & BF were still at loggerheads over the composer royalties for the different versions of Angel Eyes!
The sax deputy looks so out of place! His whole look is almost a decade off the pace; I can't decide if he looks more like Keith Lemon with a brunette rinse or former snooker player Willie Thorne in a toupee!
I kind of remember because MacKay was always my hero, so I was disappointed when he wasn't playing - or synching, as the case may be. I think I remember that the story was he was on holiday, which I thought was odd, so your joke about loggerheads may not be too far off!
