The Swinging Blue Jeans

The Swinging Blue Jeans were originally founded by Ray Ennis and Les Braid.  In 1962, they were signed to a recording contract by HMV Records and their debut single It's Too Late Now in 1963. Their next single Hippy Hippy Shake just fell short of the Number 1 slot. Th follow-up release, Good Golly Miss Molly followed suit and their next single You're No Good reached Number 3 in Britain.

However, despite several line-up changes The Swinging Blue Jeans are still going strong. Until May 2010, when he made the decision to retire, The Swinging Blue Jeans still featured original member Ray Ennis - lead, rhythm guitar and vocals (centre front) with Phil Thompson, drums, and Alan Lovell, lead guitar, vocals.

Alan started his career in Wales in the early sixties. He has toured and recorded over the years  with many named acts such as : - Marty Wilde, PJ Proby, Denny Laine, & The. New Vaudeville Band to name but a few.

He has toured extensively with The Swinging Blue Jeans and hopes to continue to do so with this chapter of The Swinging Blue Jeans history.
