Jet is reputed to have been one of the first musicians in the UK to play a bass guitar. The tour must have been a great success as he was then asked to join Wally Whyton's Vipers for a spell during his stay, the line up included on occasions both Hank Marvin and Tony Meehan.
The Vipers were a popular act at that time, Album) the skiffle era was Album) the wane and there followed a six months period which brought him only four weeks work. Probably his biggest breakthrough came in October whilst on tour with the Most Brothers one half of which was the recently deceased Mickie Most. At the end of the tour, Jet joined Cliff Richard and the Drifters permanently as bass guitarist, replacing Ian Samwell. His recording debut with the group was on Cliff's third single "Livin' Lovin' Doll" in January earlier Cliff recordings were backed by studio musicians.
In Maythe group recorded their first instrumental, "Chinchilla" for the soundtrack of Cliff's movie "Serious Charge" and a month later Jet married Carol Da Costa the lady Big Bad Bass - Jet Harris - Anniversary Album (Vinyl to have taken away Cliff's virginity.
The marriage didn't last very long. In July, "Jet Black", an instrumental written by Harris, was the second Drifters single but, like its predecessor, it did not chart. In view of the US injunction, the band decided that a permanent change of name was necessary. Their first record as The Shadows was "Saturday Dance" in Decemberbut this fared no better in the chart stakes.
During the run, Harris was involved in a car crash, injuring himself and Hank Marvin slightly. Go ahead and dig out those original 45's and appreciate just what a fully rounded sound this group produced during their purple period - all underpinned by the bass magic of our hero.
After taking "Wonderful Land" to number one in the spring ofdifferences between Jet and Bruce Welch came to a head and Harris walked out to pursue a solo career drummer Tony Meehan had left The Shadows the previous autumn to start production work with Decca records. Harris' final appearance with the group was at the "New Musical Express" Poll Album) Concert in April,at which The Shadows were belatedly presented with a gold disc for "Apache".
Two weeks later, Jet signed to Decca records under the management of Jack Good, who also acted as his producer. Ex-Shadows colleague Tony Meehan played the drums.
Meanwhile, Big Bad Bass - Jet Harris - Anniversary Album (Vinyl, The Shadows carried on producing their own hits, reaching 4 with "Guitar Tango". A number which has now become the trademark introduction to Jet's stage act aptly summed up by Rob Bradford as "the six string thunder thrill"this enjoyed similar success to "Besame" - this time spending 11 weeks in the chart and reaching its highest spot at number The B-side was another vocal, a cover of the theme from the British film "Some People".
The start of saw an interesting run of UK 1 hits. Cliff's "Bachelor Boy", was replaced by his backing group, The Shadows, with "Dance On" and then, on 31 January, Jet Harris and Tony Meehan both credited side-by-side this time usurped their former group at number one with the wonderful "Diamonds" - another Jerry Lordan composition. For this recording, Jet changed to a new Fender Jaguar guitar tuned one tone lower than normal guitar pitch. In Septemberjust a few days after the release of "Applejack", a chauffeur-driven limousine in which Jet was travelling with his girlfriend Billie Davis, was in collision with a Midland Red bus LP they travelled back from one of Billie's shows in Evesham.
The bus was written off in the accident and it was almost fatal for Jet too. Billie, who suffered a broken jaw in the accident, pulled the unconscious Jet from the wreckage of their car. He suffered serious head injuries requiring 34 stitches in the wound.
