The above unique photos of "Gaye Advert" & "Rosalind Russell" were given to us by Ros and she goes on and explains the story behind the......

As far as I recall, I had given the Adverts a bit of a stinker of a review in Record Mirror for their new single "No Time To Be 21". I seem to recall getting a phone call from Gaye, threatening to come round and sort me out. My Editor (Alf Martin) thought it would be fun to get hold of a pair of boxing gloves and get a photographer to come in to set up a picture. In the event, she was absolutely charming and resisted the chance to pop me one on the chin.

I might say I am not that brave - Debbie Harry also came into the office looking for me, after a blistering review of one of her records, and I legged it. I think she would have come off best, she was quite a tough girl. I don't think pop stars do that sort of thing anymore...

all best
