As you might expect, the David Cassidy Annual 1974 is devoted to all things David. However, the Annual also squeezed in room for short articles about Gary Glitter, the New Seekers and Slade (pages 10-12), Elvis Presley and Cliff Richard (pages 14-15); The Jackson 5 and The Osmonds (pages 34-35).
The Fab 208 annual for 1973 included a full-page photograph of the New Seekers (page 20).
Lyn Paul and Peter Doyle were also featured in a 'Who do they belong to?' quiz, which asked readers to match pictured items with the stars who owned them: in Lyn's case, her "constant companion" choker and in Peter's case, his ring.
The Fab 208 annual for 1974 included a photo of Lyn Paul (page 64) and a photo of Lyn with the New Seekers (page 61). Lyn was also featured in an article 'Look Pretty My Way', alongside other stars of the day such as Cilla Black, Marie Osmond and Olivia Newton-John.
