Baby - Christchurch Town Hall 1974
John Purvis (Guitar/Vocals) and Nancy Kiel (Vocals) Danny Bennett (Drums) and Graham Josephs

The original Baby line-up was John Purvis (Guitar), Bill Nichol (Guitar), David Shine (Bass), Donald Bean (Drums) with Ann Wigston (Vocals).  Ann was replaced by the ultimate face of Baby, the inimitable Nancy Kiel, who remained as singer for the duration of the life of the group.  Bill Nichol was replaced by Dave Warring (RIP).  When David Shine, Dave Warring and Don Bean left, John and Nancy recruited the Hudson brothers , Steve (Drums) and Chris (Keyboards) along with Liam Ryan (Keyboards).  Baby had a regular gig at The Marine Hotel, Sumner circa 1978.
