John Fred & His Playboy Band: Judy In Disguise


This was written by John Fred (surname Gourrier) and group member Andrew Bernard as a play on the Beatles’ Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. It was released in late 1967 and in January 1968 it reached No 1 in the US and No 3 in Britain. This video is pretty terrible – looks like the vision mixer had just got a new desk and was playing about with it.

  1. Quite a few rock and pop films of the late sixties are spoilt by the (then) new and exciting techniques and special effects.

    In fact “special effects” are the kiss of death to most films.
