Manchesterbeat Volume 2: The Later Years - SORRY SOLD OUT
A must for those a little younger than the first round of Manchester groups :-)
Covers the later beat groups, the soul bands (whoopee) and the heavier groups of the late sixties.
From flares and white jackets to denim.
From 'C'mon yous all, clap yer hands, we're gonna sock it to yer one more time ' to heads down and rockin.
Odd how it happened - I went from a shaved head, brogues and beige suit to shoulder length hair, a fur coat, velvet trousers and floppy felt hat in just 2 years - and yet still played 'Shake' and 'Respect'.
