(The Beatles and The Stones in the Swinging Sixties)
by Steve Overbury
New on the shelves for Christmas, London Babylon (The Beatles and The
Stones in the Swinging Sixties) by Steve Overbury looks worthy of
your attention if you're a fan of the swinging decade.
Don't be put off by the title, according to the spiel, the book is
underpinned by the two bands, but also focuses on the 'bit-part
players' of the scene - dope dealers, art dealers, dolly birds,
drivers and slaves, fashionistas, villains and aristocrats - the in
crowd, the jet set, the jeunesse d'orée, along with others who shared
the limelight during that decade.
Read some of the book online at the book's
and if you like what you see, this 416-page large format book that's
'stuffed wth anecdotes, exotics and pictures' is available from
Amazon or direct from the author for £12.99.
