This came up in Youtube just the other day, on the Historic Film Stock Footage Archive channel:

Too bad it so short, though. But there's plenty of other interesting stuff there:

Yes. Thanks so much for this.

Any film of The Professor is invaluable.

This has brought back hazy memories.

One August Bank Holiday I was visiting friends in Liverpool. Around 7pm my hosts took me to a club that went by the name of Trials. The "headliner" that night was Prof Longhair. A band by the name of The Cruisers did their stuff and at around 8pm Fess took to the stage and did two sets. He was magic...does event this ring bells with our "brains trust".

I found this online piece from 2002:

LIVERPOOL soul singer George Maudsley makes his first bid for the Big Time tonight - at the age of 48.

By day, Maudsley is a signwriter, responsible for many of those brightly coloured pub and restaurant boards you find across Liverpool.

But away from the job he turns himself into Professor Longhair, one of the most popular singers on the Liverpool music scene.

It is in the North West that the "Professor'' has made his name belting out blues and soul with his own band.


I somehow thinks it's not the same geezer.....
