The Levi suede jacket with the leather collar was the biz.Also Levi check shirts and corduroy jackets. R&B/Blues music at the time.Britains finest!!
John Mayall,(John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton 1966) Georgie Fame,Graham Bond Organisation,Chris Farlowe,Alexis Korner,Zoot Money.
American Blues popular, John Lee Hooker,Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin Wolf, Sonny Terry Brownie McGhee,
Great soul LPS at the time that captured the era – Jimmy James and the Vagabonds/Alan Bown Set. “LONDON SWINGS Live at the Marquee” 1966 Geno Washington and the Ram Jam Band “Hand Clappin, Foot stompin, Funky-Butt Live” 1966
