I wasn't aware there was a contest.
But on the other hand, if you want to know what tunes were heard and danced to in the skinhead clubs in 1969, it was exactly those 'boring' ones.I was at a revival 'do' last February, and although the music was good, in its own way (except it made conversation difficult), I didn't recognise a single record played.
I tend to agree. I enlarged the photo as much as I could and came to the conclusion it's just an inadvertent 'trick' of the photo. No one of that era would have worn a collar like that. I don't even think they were in the shops yet. None of the hippies at college had 'em.When they did become popular - early 70s, the shape was slightly different. If you look at the pic of JD, you can see a kind of outwards flair to the collar, more exaggerated than on the modern Ivyskin...
The first thing I thought was "Hey - I have a sheepskin like that!" I picked up on the 'early Northern Soul' line. There's a lot of the 'late Northern mod' about him.
We're not just off topic - we've left the bloody solar system!
Comme d'habitude - I remember that one!I seem to recall Hugues Aufray covered Bob Dylan songs - L'homme orchestre for example (Mr Tambourine Man) - and the Beatles too (Je croyais - Yesterday)As for Johnny... Half-Belgian? Oh what a damning indictment! [Off topic!]
This one's especially for Clouseau. Johnny Halliday sings Steve Cropper/Eddie Floyd. In the late-mid-60s, JH covered some Memphis Soul. The rest of you need not watch.
Ja, gewiss!
Ja gewiƟ!
True, but the sociology in the UK back then was just how roytonboy described it - to 15/16/17-year olds, blokes of 18/19/20 were 'men', and to the latter the former were 'kids'. There was a different feel to the punk era, to an extent.Anyhow, back in the soul era, I already had thoughts of being a DJ and had done a couple of gigs - maybe I would have become one of the name DJs of the early 70s. You never know! Me at the Blackpool Mecca!Just idle dreams!
