They Appeared At The City Hall in SHEFFIELD CINEMAS, THEATRES & MUSIC HALLS Posted May 12, 2010 Now here is a pop trivia question that both me and my wife would love to know the answer to, - Who was "The wailing woman" on Johnny Leytons records "Johnny Remember Me" and "Wild Wind"? Neither his official site, or the Joe Meek site (who produced Leytons records) mention her so we would love to know. Her "wailing" certainly adds a mysterious atmosphere to both of these hits. We think she would have been an ideal subject to appear on Eamon Andrews programme "What's My Line?" due to the fact that she never sang, only wailed. Well Dave, the answer to your "wailing woman" question is - Lissa Gray, who sang on many of the records produced by Joe Meek. I hope that wins you your next Pub Quiz - and, if it does, you owe me a pint ! By the way, Billy Fury is gone, but Mike Sarne is still with us. He appeared in "Doctors" (BBC), only last year, and before that, both him and John Leyton (and other contemporaries) appeared in the Joe Meek biopic - "TELSTAR"......not as themselves, but playing character roles. If you havn't seen this fabulous movie - do so! (it's out on DVD). It's a real nostalgia trip, and Con O'Neill is absolutely amazing as Joe Meek. Likewise.....read John Repsch's excellent biography of Meek - "The Legendary Joe Meek - The Telstar Man" (Cherry Red Books). As far as I know, the Brook Brothers are still with us....... Ricky being 70 this year, and Geoff 67. Wow!....that makes me feel old (although, not as old as them !).
