David Essex: Roll On For The Main Attraction

Barbara Charone, Sounds, 20 September 1975

JUST OFF the Fulham Road, round the corner from an old cinema that Manticore have converted into a hollow rehearsal hall, David Essex sits in a local cafe, drinking tea and dissecting his new stage show with arranger and confident Jeff Wayne. They are a strange sight; Essex with his 8x10 glossy good looks, Wayne with his rugged Dustin Hoffman appearance.
