Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fings Ain't Wot They Used T'Be: The Life of Lionel Bart (Hardcover)
If you lived through the sixties then this will evoke many memories for you. It is not only a biography of one of Britain's greatest songwriters but it covers a lot of history of the time. Tales of Tommy Steele, Cliff Richard, Alma Cogan, Judy Garland etc are littered liberally throughout.
The only grouse I have is the Author's writing style. Some poor language and four letter words are used during the narrative; I'm not a prude but think the writers should have kept it simpler.
