Graham Bonney - Supergirl (1966)



A great career started with that № 1 in Grmany and Top Twenty hit in Great Britain

He was born in Basildon, Essex, and worked as a child actor before forming his first group when at school. In 1961 he joined the Espresso Five, followed in 1962 by The Ambers, with whom he performed at the Star-Club in Hamburg. In 1964 he became lead singer with The Riot Squad, a band put together by manager Larry Page.

After three unsuccessful singles for Pye Records in 1965, Bonney left the band for a solo career. He started writing songs with Barry Mason, and his second solo single "Super Girl", issued on the Columbia label, reached no.19 on the UK singles chart in 1966. It proved more popular in Europe, reaching number 1 in some German charts and remaining in the top 10 there for several months, reportedly selling over 1 million copies

Its Very Rare album and true gift from Jancy..
