Theresa Barrett ~ Thanks Bosco, Yes Max was a good friend and thanks to him my sister and I got our own half hour program on Radio Pakistan playing a selection of songs that we liked.  That was in the early 70’s.  I still have the two shows taped on cassette.  I also have a pic of Max and I dancing at your sister’s 21st birthday.  I should post it on the site! RIP Max. (Max Nazareth recorded these tracks)

  1. My God!!! brought back memories of the good ol’ days. Bravo!! Blackjacks. The best thing is the coordination/sync of the band, the harmonies and reproducing it so close to the original songs. Just Loved it. The bands and musicians of today should learn from these guys. It is indeed very sad that today in Karachi there is not a single band who can come close to the Legendary Musicians of those times. I want to thank Lyn, Bosco, Max and everyone involved, from the bottom of my heart, who have put in so much effort to pass on this treasure to all of us. GOD BLESS you all.

  2. Incredibly nice of you’ll to post this. However the error. Original Blackjacks set-up (No photos available) the one on top is of the “Talismen”. This new set-up occured after the group came back from their Singapore trip, performed for a while and then split into “Talismen” and “Keynotes”. Circa 1979. The musical recording however is of the original “Blackjacks” (Glen, Michael, Bobby, Ronnie and Tony TJ)

  3. Thank you a bunch for sharing this with all folks you actually realize what you’re talking about!
