With 40 years passing and fun books about the history of this wonderful time, the kids of this generation are now playing the same music we grew up with. Along with the music so comes the same fashions. So today look for pajamas as school clothes along with black leotards for young ladies and Mohair Suites, parkers, short Mod hair and Frank Zappa face for young men. After 40 years Dinky is thinking of selling his extensive record collection of Northern Soul, played at every club he performed at. Anyone interested please send e-mail for more information.
