Beryl Marsden has been mentioned here a couple of times in the past in connection with Shotgun Express. These two songs from "Beat, Beat, Beat" in Germany must be from shortly before that group was formed -

'Everything is Gonna Be Allright' (Willie Mitchell)

'Strong Love' (The Mailbus; also by the Spencer Davis Group)

with the Quotations, who backed the Walker Brothers and visiting US acts when they appeared live

A career anthology CD has just been released

Having had the privilege and pleasure of providing back up guitar for Beryl a couple of times, I can confirm she is an absolute sweetheart.

(I may have asked this before)

Does anyone know why there was a very obscure TV sitcom called 'That Beryl Marsden' ??

Born Beryl Hogg in Toxteth 10th June, 1947 (two days after Julie Driscoll) - Beryl is 70 today

‘I Know (You Don’t Love Me No More)’ another one from her 1966 German TV appearance on “Beat, Beat, Beat” - Barbara George’s song which had earlier been on Beryl's first single in 1963 -

‘Everybody Loves a Lover” (based on the Shirelles’ version) - from the 1964 Decca LP “At the Cavern”, introduced by Bob Wooler (who wanted her to sign up with Brian Epstein - "Bob was always in my corner")
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hl-imAbAWXo

‘Who You Gonna Hurt?’ (1965) - her only chart entry, - two weeks at nos. 29 & 30 in the NME (but allegedly some “fixing” may have been involved)

Song previously recorded by UK group called the Colorados (who I can find no information on)

written by Joy Byers who died last month

‘Hello Stranger’ - from the soundtrack of the 1997 film “Another nine and a half weeks” credited to Gospel Garden feat. Beryl Marsden - not the Barbara Lewis song, but I guess influenced by it (written by Beryl with Francis Haines)

A little clip from the totally unconnected ITV Brighton-based sitcom mentioned above - I somehow don't imagine too many chuckles would result from viewing a complete episode
