Ruby Flipper – Morning Glory

Top of the Pops, 26/08/1976: Ruby Flipper dance to Morning Glory by James and Bobby Purify. Well of course Sue, Patti and Lulu are looking lovely here: but Cherry, in that fuchsia & gold outfit looks absolutely fabulous. What a fine routine. My favourite moment? Patti’s mock-admonishing wagging finger at 0’38”. Kudos to Phil for […]

Legs & Co. – Just When I Needed You Most

Top of the Pops, 23/08/1979: Legs & Co. dance to “Just When I Needed You Most” by Randy Vanwarmer.

Legs & Co. – Bankrobber

Top of the Pops, 21 August 1980: Legs & Co dance to Bankrobber by The Clash.

Pan’s People – You Make Me Feel Brand New

Top of the Pops 15th August 1974: Pan’s People dance to You Make Me Feel Brand New by¬†The¬†Stylistics. From a show specially presented by The Osmonds.
