The Changing Of The Guard ~The Sixties London Pop Explosion - Various

The Changing Of The Guard ~The Sixties London Pop Explosion
The Changing of the Guard is a unique music and dialogue sound collage of Swinging London in 1968; a time of exciting developments in all the artistic fields and a time when England set cultural standards that the world is still trying to emulate. Protagonists central to the scene are included here: Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones discussing revolution; his manager Andrew Loog Oldham explaining business philosophy; the young Michael Caine debating morals in the context of the permissive society; Julie Christie on fame and Lee Marvin on Mini cars and mini skirts! The dialogue is edited against brilliant historic London pop of the period: big hits such as The Small Face's 'Itchychoo Park' and 'Here Come The Nice', Chris Farlowe's memorable number one 'Out of Time', 'If Paradise is Half as Nice' by The Amen Corner and mercurial psychedelia; The Marquis of Kensington, Fleur De Lys, Duncan Browne, Billy Nicholls and the first line up of Humble Pie featuring Steve Marriott and the Face Of 1968 - Peter Frampton. Special mention too for an early song from Vashti! The success of Andrew Oldham's two recent autobiographies, confirms that there has never been more fascination with the period, even if some of it is nostalgia for what we have subsequently unfortunately lost.
