5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Word on the Little Giant..., 9 May 2015
It was very obvious Mr Spillett was the 'go to' man with regards to all things Tubby Hayes related and this marvellous book confirms that fact 100%.

It is a mighty work and in my humble opinion does Tubby proud, detailing as it does the highs and lows of his life as well as his 23 year career professional playing career. It is written with immense skill, with an excellent turn of phrase and you just know you are reading an author who knows his subject inside out.
I have urged anyone with not only a passing interest in learning more on Tubby Hayes to read it, but also those who want to know more on post war life Britain and the world of UK jazz back then.

For me, it is the definitive work on the subject and will always will be.

This review is from: The Tripping Horse (Paperback)
Beautifully written, this book will take you on a thoroughly enjoyable, but sometimes dark journey with many a interesting twist. As with all books by the author, you feel he knows his subject very well, and this is no exception. It is written with a voice of authority. Do yourself a favour, pick up a copy and buckle up for the ride...

The Fashion of Football: From Best to Beckham, from Mod to Label Slave
by Paolo Hewitt
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a Cult Classic, 25 Aug. 2009
As the prices this book is now fetching on the 'second-hand' market indicate, the Fashion of Football is fast becoming a cult classic.

Every discerning follower of football and fashion should have one in their bookcase, it is the reference book for the future.
