The concert was sold out within the 1st week,
the Royal Albert Hall seating nearly 6,000 people.
It was televised live on BBC One to an estimated
2 Billion people and was also live on
BBC Radio 2.
Record's sales for 'Windows' were so successful that
Regal Zonophone awarded George Formby
the first silver disc for sales of over 100,000 copies.
On a Personal Note...
Alyson & I would like to thank the
George Formby Society especially the
President & Secretary; Gerry & Vivien Mawdsley
for choosing us to be a part of this golden opportunity.
It was a great honour and our pleasure to be a part of
this extremely special and historic event.
In George's words - "It turned out nice again".
