“The Sixties was recognized as a decade of transition from the conservative Fifties and also the birth of revolutionary ways to live and create. In the entertainment industry, many changes happened in the world of dance. The Sixties was all about learning the newest dance craze and performing them on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand. Dancing, was a driving force that brought people together in peace and happiness, and continues to be influential across the world today. Looking back, there were so many great dance crazes from the Sixties that a few of our favorites have been somewhat lost to history. So the Dusty Old Thing website decided to compile them all in one place for your toe-tapping pleasure. Chances are you’ve heard of most of these great dance songs; if you’re old enough, you might even remember dancing along to a few of them!”  Source / All RIghts Reserved:


“Following on from 2016’s well-received TurpentineThe Panoramic View is British singer/guitarist/songwriter Mark Harrison’s sixth album and probably his best yet. In a collection of 15 original songs, played on a variety of acoustic instruments, recorded with crystalline clarity by Tim Bazell of Heart of Gold Studios in London, Harrison cheerfully mixes folk, blues and gospel to create an album that is uplifting, thought-provoking, entertaining and distinctly different.
In addition to singing in his unaffected yet curiously affecting voice, Harrison fingerpicks National and 12-string guitars masterfully in a Piedmont style, adroitly picking up a slide on “Ain’t No Justice”. Each song has a different line-up of musicians, from the solo ragtime instrumental “Pool Meadow Strut” (which is not, apparently, named after some rural paradise but the main bus station in the English city of Coventry) to a full band line-up. Harrison’s regular band of  Charles Benfield (double bass) and Ben Welburn (drums and percussion) are joined at different time by Paddy Milner (piano), Ed Hopwood (harmonica) and Paul Tkachenko (trombone, trumpet, mandolin and even tuba on “Mess Is Everywhere”) […] .

“Three times winners on Opportunity Knocks, British television’s hugely popular talent show of the late 60s, the Casuals subsequently left the UK for Italy, where they became a leading attraction. Alan Taylor (b. Halifax, Yorkshire, England; guitar, bass), Johnny Tebb (b. 1 October 1945, Lincoln, England; organ), Howard Newcombe (b. Lincoln, England; guitar, trumpet) and Robert O’Brien (b. Bridge Of Allan, Central Scotland; drums) were based in Milan for several years before returning to Britain in 1968, when their single, ‘Jesamine’, entered the charts. The song was originally recorded by The Bystanders as ‘When Jesamine Goes’, but the Casuals’ inherently commercial reading coincided with a prevailing trend for emotional ballads. The single ultimately reached number 2, but later releases were less successful and ‘Toy’ (1968), which peaked at number 30, was their only other hit. The Casuals continued to record superior pop: Move leader Roy Wood wrote and produced the polished ‘Caroline’ (1969), but as the decade closed, so their style of music grew increasingly anachronistic”.

Note by Eddy Bonte: The Casuals remained far more popular in Continental Europe, where ‘Toy’ (written by Chris Andrews!) was a greater hit than ‘at home’ (no. 17 in Holland, no. 15 in Belgium). In Italy, they released a single in Italian as ‘The Climate’. Later incarnations of the group were not successful. The Bystanders released eight singles in all, none of which became hits but are well worth listening to.
