During the 1950s Billy Fury was one of the biggest hit makers in the country. Billy Fury was born Ron Wycherley in 1940. He left school at 15, and, inspired by country music, began writing songs. Billy was the first musician from Liverpool to release a whole album of original material, The Sound of Fury. He is top of the bill on this poster, playing The Imperial Ballroom, Nelson, Lancashire on 16 October, 1965.
