Not the Who song, but the recently released Michael Caine DVD, about the 60s era. Have got this and have watched it twice, plenty of music through it as well, plus Michael Caine movie clips, acts like Beatles, Stones, Who, Marianne Faithful and Twiggy, plus Mary Quant plus others are in it, its 1hr and 20 minutes long but a good bio-doc type film only on DVD though.
I enjoy listening to the Motown sound, in either CD or Vinyl, and have some favourites from that sixties period, also have seen Motown the Musical 3 times in London, mind you on an organised coach trip lots of memory's in that.
My brother brought an old tea chest home and with a piece of thick cord and a broom handle, made a fantastic bass. You had to put your foot on it to steady it while stretching the cord attached to the middle of the tea chest and broomstick. Seems they were all the rage then. Lonnie Donegan, Ken Colyer, made great foot stomping music. Wonder how many people made home- made musical instruments. I was a very talented child, when I was two, I played on the linoleum!
For me it was being a £10 pom. As a kid my Mum used to buy Lyon's quick brew tea, it came in a grey box, inside was a paper type sleeve with the dry tea in it. Between the box and sleeve would be a picture card of things about Australia, I got the album for 6d to stick the cards in. I read this album from end to end countless times and, at the age of 11 was bent on going to live there. I had a rotten time growing up and couldn't wait to leave home, so OZ was looking good. Never got there, joined the Army instead and never went back home, both of my parents died when I was in my 30's I'm not in touch with any other family member, as we do not like each other
