Cuttings Archive

Throughout his long career, Noel Harrison featured countless times in newspapers and magazines across the world.

While Noel himself did not collected a large archive of these cuttings, an American fan did make a collection of clippings in the 1960s, which he passed onto the singer.

In 2011, Noel made this archive available to www.thewindmillsofyourmind.com and a selection of the articles, dating from 1966 to 1967 is now available to read here. But please note, these documents are photocopies of photocopies, so in some areas, the text can be somewhat difficult to read.
