Annie Lennox

Annie Lennox has an amazing voice, I once met someone who would pre-record songs for her in a very soulful style for Lennox to emulate. Does that job even have a name? Can anyone help here?
Anyway here she is on the ‘Tube’ a very popular British TV program which I really, really hope will return to the screens.
It launched a lot of careers for the likes of Paula Yates, Jools Holland, Muriel Gray etc etc

Hippies in San Francisco

This is an interesting, informative and amusing special report from ITN’s ‘Reporting ’67’.

It features the hippies of Haight Ashbury, a street-wide spontaneous happening, the diggers (including Ron Thelin, digger and co-owner of The Psychedelic Shop) a bus tour, and various other hippiesque lifestyle features including hospitalisation due to bad LSD trips..

1970s punks in the Kings Road – London

Interesting news report from ITN on the Kings Road punks during the 1970s, their clashes with teddy boys, a look inside Vivienne Westwood’s shop and an interview with a punk on the use of amphetamines. The guy at the end of the clip certainly looks like he’s on something .. 😛
