Forever Amber were a Dundee band who were on the go in the late 60's.
That was the easy bit. The difficult bit is finding out the band line-up...and so that is the mystery I will need your help to solve.
I can set the ball rolling by naming one definite - HARRY ADAMS. I know this because he was my next door neighbour at the time (Kemnay Gardens), and the band used to practise there quite a lot. In fact I remember getting a couple of lessons from their guitarist (Richie?) around the backies when they were having a break from rehearsing. I would only be about 10 then.
Harry was a keyboard player and used to have a red portable organ (Farfisa or Vox?) similar to what Peter Tork played on "I'm a Believer".
I have asked quite a few of my older music contacts and some names have made the list of band member possibilities, but none of them have been confirmed as definite. Here who's on the maybe list - DOUGAL McINTOSH - RICKY MUNRO - DONNY COUTTS - RICHIE DUNCAN - IAN CUSSICK.
If anyone can say for sure whether any of the above were or weren't in Forever Amber, that would be great. Or if you have any more contenders, just drop the info into the comments.
Musically, I think they were a pop/r&b outfit rather than psychedelic rock say, and although I saw their van come and go, I've no idea where they played or how long they were together.
I managed to get the lowdown on another mystery band, Thynglechime, trying this method and since then the band line-up and extra info has been added to the comments.
So you never know, with a bit of teamwork, we may be able to piece this one together too.
Get yer thinking caps on!!
PS - to confuse matters, there was another band with the same name from England who were on the go at the same time, so I don't think you'll get much help from the internet as that lot are the only ones who crop up.
You'll just have to rely on your memory!
