"Featuring Paul Mariner and Billy Rafferty,
two of the club’s most popular ever players and arguably their most deadly
strike pairing, ‘Dream Season’ tells the tale of one of the golden
seasons in Argyle’s history.
It contains never before seen video
footage from critical games of the 1974-75 season; and revealing, exclusive
interviews with Paul and Billy, as well as their team-mates from a line-up that
will always be remembered: Furnell, Hore, Johnson, Mariner, McAuley, Green,
Burrows, Saxton, Rafferty, Delve, Randell, Vassallo – the names still trip off
Also featuring the evocative memories of
Paul Stapleton and vice-chairman Peter Jones, who stood on the terraces to watch
Mariner and Rafferty; long-serving Pilgrims’ secretary Graham Little; and
Evening Herald Argyle correspondent of the time, Graham Hambly.
Released to coincide with the Pilgrims’
centenary season, ‘Dream Season’ is an Argyle Media Production, and will be the
first of many Home Park produced videos.
It is produced and edited by the club’s
head of communications Rick Cowdery, with highly respected broadcast journalist
– and Argyle fanatic - Gary Lovejoy, former director of broadcasting at
Eurosport, and sports reporter for Westward, the executive producer. Completing
the home team is camera and sound specialist Steve Hill.
The video, which runs for an hour and
retails at £12.99, is available only from the club shop."

Surprisingly, Paul and Bill played only

Argyle greats, but it was their partnership that
stood them apart from all others. Mariner and Rafferty

Rupert Metcalf in the Western Morning News:
"If you're old enough to remember flared trousers, wide lapels, long hair and a
great Argyle team, then this video will bring back to life some wonderful
memories. If you're too young, then it will be an education."
And a personal view: YOU
MUST BUY THIS VIDEO! If you've hesitated so far - perhaps it was
before your time - think again. This production is for every Argyle fan, and
will bring out the goose pimples whatever their age.
Dream Season can only be purchased from the club shop.
