Authentic "Sixties Chick",
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Miss O'Dell: My Hard Days and Long Nights with The Beatles, The Stones, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, and the Women They Loved (Hardcover)
Chris O' Dell authenticates her "Sixties Chick" pedigree with an absolutely gorgeoues up to date shot of herself in the book and looks every bit as attractive now, with her Sixties hairstyle, as she did then. The one missing photo is the one of her in flower power gear but we can wish..........
I usually avoid books written by women because they tend, for me, to be too emotional, and not enough factual. But after reading Richard D'Lello's book on the Beatles Co, Apple Corps, "The Longest Cocktail Party...." I was looking for something just as atmospheric - and found it in this book.
Its the little things she tells you about the rich, musical and famous that gives you a more candid look into their personalities than the showbiz "cardboard cut-out" presentations would have you believe.
Chris O' Dell appears to be how a lot of women were in the 1960s, including Jenny Diski (author- "The Sixties-Big Ideas"), Germaine Greer, Raechel Donahue etc., sensing and finding their new youth power, and making the most of it. Conservative, these girls were not. Attractive their attitude was. They bring back to my memory a couple of ex-girlfriends ( Hello Maggie! xx) I had at the time. Save for the likes of O' Dell and Diski they are a dead breed, and certainly not present in the current youth generation. It seems we really did have it all.... Once....
