Remnants from the Damaged Archive

24 Nov 2018 12:16AM   Views : 904 Unique : 360

It was 1971 when I first saw a live show from Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, and from then onwards I must have seen another 50 or more, helped a lot by being part of the team that ran the fan club. Great days, just about to come to an end with Frankie's last UK tour. It's been a fantastic run! Sadly though, my archive of photos taken during the UK tours was badly damaged by water some years ago. There's nothing that's 100% safe, although some prints survive that could be copied, the negatives are a bit of a mess. It's good that some of my images have made their way into tour brochures. Anyway, a nostalgic look follows and some of the pictures will show all sorts of damage. Film was generally Kodak Tri-X and cameras varied. I have more recent images shot digitally, but for now I'm just showing the film ones shot in the 1970s and 1980s.
