Bill Haley Hits Britain
Tony Brown, Melody Maker, 9 February 1957
AT 2.55PM on Tuesday, the organised and highly publicised reception for Bill Haley looked like being a flop. A few couples, exhorted by precariously perched cameramen, jived dispiritedly between puddles in Southampton Docks to a rock 'n' roll band. Damp Welcome-Haley banners were held apathetically aloft.
