The Swinging 60's were celebrated in July at London 60's Week. You can still check the decade's timeline.
Nostalgia keeps giving.
In 5 days, Vintage at Godwood will open its doors.
It will revisit fashion, culture, art, music, and vintage caravans from 40's to 80's.
I noted earlier that The Faces would be there with Mick Hucknall taking Rod Stewart's spot.
If you are a Jazz and Vocal fan, The Swingle Singers presence will be a treat.
Even the Punk era is Vintage now (sounds better than Classic Rock) and is represented by The Beat, Buzzcoks, The Damned and lesser known bands like The Rezillos.
Dance, DJ's and 70's Funk are not forgotten from Ram Jam ('Black Betty') to Jazzy B.
On opening night Sandy Shaw, the barefoot 60's sensation Reclaims the songs. She will revisit guys songs with a number of other singing ladies as her guests.
She shares with Peter Stanford what's she's been up to since the last time she set foot on a stage some 25 years ago in Full circle: Why is Sandie Shaw back on stage? (Independent, August 8).
Mostly after having suffered the side effects of stardom, she became a therapist in the 90's so she could help others survive or even thrive through the exercize.
I discovered Vintage at Goodwood while interviewing Chris Haddon on My Cool Caravan (the Book).
Some of the Vintage Caravans from the book will be on display during the festival.
Let there be sun!
