Ive seen many terrible shaped Levi Corduroy jackets but with the Big E label, and likewise, proper shaped ones with small e..

I got a white corduroy jacket with the Big E label quite some time ago, seems like something they had to have made long after 1971.

Put that way it makes perfect sense.

I don't think anyone would have claimed that satellite towns of London could have been influenced by the North. Certainly I haven't.

Now I think back to my experiences in 68/69, it occurs to me that there is a bit of a geographical gap. I would get on a coach at Victoria and travel non-stop to Blackpool or Manchester, or I would get a tube train to just before the M1 and hitch-hike. Coming back I would reverse the process. I knew absolutely nothing about what lay in between those two points.

The reason why I put that M-o-M is that around here in Lincolnshire,they were influenced by the North.Yet it is quicker to get to London than Manchester.OK,so it is about 80/100 miles from Central London-but to get to Manchester today takes 3/4 hours (London is 2 1/2 hours max.).There are Photos up,on other Sites,that quote "The Twisted Wheel" etc.,where the Music and Club Influence came from.smile.gif
