The Hippie Shake with Joanna Lambert

As my latest book, Storm Clouds Gathering is set in 1965 I thought it would be great fun to take a peek at that amazing era. With this in mind, The Hippie Shake will appear regularly on my Blog. 

This week's guest is author, Joanna Lambert who shares three memories of that amazing era!

Schreiber bedroom furniture - this is what was considered mainstream fashion for bedrooms in 1965

Clint Eastwood in A Few Dollars More - the follow up to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly the spaghetti western (so called because it was filmed in Italy) which launched him as an international star.

The group Unit 4 + 2, who had a big hit with Concrete and Clay in 1965.  Some of its members went on to either form other bands or become record producers.

Yay! Unit 4 Plus 2 was my sisters favourite group. She was 21 in 1965 and I well remember Concrete and Clay blasting out from our old Bush record player during her rather glam party at my family home. Great record.
