Product description

Compiled by well-known broadcaster Mike Read, this is a giant scrapbook of memoirs and memorabila contributed by dozens of former South Coast musicians of the 1960s, which takes the reader on an enjoyable wander down Memory Lane to a time when the British Beat Scene was in full swing.

Illustrated with hundreds of period photographs and reproductions of memorabilia such as posters, tickets, flyers and album covers, this book contains the collective memories of a generation of local musicians, some of whom went on to great success in the music business whilst others faded into obscurity. What they all share is a warm-hearted nostalgia for the era, which this book does a great job in recording for posterity.

Everyone gets a mention here ~ from the Aardvarks to the Zabres ~ and their stories of the fun they had playing to audiences up and down the South Coast whilst dreaming of the big-time make for entertaining reading.

Will appeal particularly to anyone from the South old enough to remember the era but contains plenty of additional material of interest to record collectors, historians and music buffs.
