The first three videos below feature Jon Derek with the very last 'Country Fever' line-up. Filmed at a venue in Corby, Northamptonshire in 1991, shortly before Jon went into semi-retirement and at a time when he was enjoying singing more and more like his hero George Jones.
The next three videos were fimed at The Seven Eleven Country Music Club in Kenton, Middlesex in 1992. Jon Derek was the guest artiste that night to mark the club's 20th anniversary. He was backed for the very first time by the band 'Hobo'. Unfortunately the professional film crew forgot to add reverb in post production - so the vocals sound very dry!!
Jon Derek was the first British Country Music artist to cover 'The Wind Beneath My Wings' and recorded it a few years later. Ably assisted by good friends 'Circuit Judge' at a venue in Peterborough in 1987 - this was filmed by an amateur cameraman at a time when Jon had just recently relocated to Cambridgeshire and was in the process of forming a new-look Country Fever.
Jon Derek & Country Fever at a show in the north of England around about 1990/91. This was filmed by an amateur cameraman and was originally on VHS - so the quality is not great. (Above) - Performing the Tompall & The Glaser Brothers classic 'A Girl Like You' and (Below) having a jam finale.
Jon Derek in 1988 with his band Country Fever at a venue in deepest Norfolk performing one of his most requested songs in the latter part of his career 'Barstool Mountain'. This was filmed by an amateur cameraman so unfortunately the sound and quality is not that good at all.
