Missing music, hopefully not lost

The following were pre-recorded by the JB7 as part of the soundtrack to this BBC drama in 1961, along with songs by Ray Brooks & Johnny De Little. As in the case of Drumbeat, there is little chance of this still existing in the BBC archives.

Girl On A Roof:

  • Not Guilty (written by Trevor Peacock)
  • I Want You Baby (written by John Barry)

The JB7 made countless radio appearances on shows like Saturday, Club, Easy Beat & Music With A Beat. All of them were pre-recorded so there is a chance at least some of them still exist. They also accompanied a wide variety of vocalists. The following is not an exhaustive list – merely the ones we know about.


  • Easy Beat, Saturday Club, Music With A Beat
