What a delight to get a long and very interesting comment from the original Pompey rock & roller on the previous post. Thanks too, to Rod, for making the contact. Great memories from when I was very young indeed. Thanks Frank. Incidentally it must be a week for the Classics – saw Ian Duck on Weds evening and an hour or two earlier came home to find a present from Tony Ransley who has been over for a little while. I managed to miss him but it was very kind (cricket books since you’re asking)
Incidentally, Oscar will know/have this already but there’s a new book by Jon Savage called 1966: the Year the Decade Exploded. I’ve just started it and it seems a really good one. 12 Chapters, each linked to a 45rpm record of the year but exploring all sorts.
