    ANIMALS & FRIENDS In 1964 a wave of new energetic rock and roll swept over the youth of the world. On the crest of this wave was The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and of course The Animals. From the banks of the River Tyne came the North East's offering; a brand of rhythm n blues that the whole world seemed to grasp greedily. The band subsequently achieved over twenty global Top Ten hit records, many of which gained the Number One slot in various parts of the world. In Britain alone, the band had no less than twelve chart entries

    Originally called The Mavericks, Tony Crane and Billy Kinsley formed their first band in late 1960 and became The Pacifics in September 1961. They were re-named The Mersey Beats in February 1962 by Bob Wooler, MC of the famous Cavern Club. Later in April 1962 they became The Merseybeats. By now Crane and Kinsley had joined up with guitarist Aaron Williams and drummer John Banks. They were originally signed to the Brian Epstein organisation, but when Epstein failed to supply The Merseybeats with the same classy suits that he had given The Beatles, they parted company with him, much to their later regret. They then signed a record deal with Fontana and had their first hit single in 1963 with “It’s Love That Really Counts”, followed in 1964 by their million-selling recording “I Think of You” which gained them their first gold disc. They had two more major hits, “Don’t Turn Around” and “Wishin’ & Hopin’”. Other successful recordings included “Last Night”, “Don’t Let it Happen to Us”, “I Love You Yes I Do”, “I Stand Accused”, “Mister Moonlight”, “Really Mystified”, “The Fortune Teller”, and “Lovely Loretta”.
