1967 Part 1

I last posted an episode of The Rock n Roll Years in July 2018 which covered the year 1965. Unfortunately I don’t have the 1966 episode so I’m going to jump ahead to 1967. For the history of music in general and what is most important to me – my history of music, 1967 is… Continue reading 1967 Part 1

The Missing Years No 1

So far I have kept a steady consistent stream in my posting of the Rock & Roll Years series. But as I have earlier alluded there are gaps in my collection and sadly a significant gap in that 1962 and 1963 are both missing. I have always thought that these would have been 2 of… Continue reading The Missing Years No 1

Nineteen 61 Revisited

I thought for this one that I would extend the range and I was thinking of poetry books… Continue reading Rock And Roll Years 1959

When I Was 4

In fact I’m missing some of the ones that I would most like to have in particular those that cover the period when British bands first made their extraordinary impact. In addition some… Continue reading When I Was 4

MCMLVII

the next episode of the rock ‘n’ roll years covers 1957. i’ve put together a list of some of the classic films of that year. the choice is fairly arbitrary and it could well be that i haven’t actually seen some of those that i’ve listed. only one of them i think is mentioned in… Continue reading MCMLVII

Back to 1956

You can find this now on Youtube, I don’t know if my version is better but here it is anyway I hope you like it. I have most of this series from the 80s and I will try to work my way through it. For me it starts a couple of years after I was… Continue reading Back to 1956
