August 20: Pitch-Impaired Singer To Lead Revival

Here's an obscure item. I'd heard of it back in the day - put it on my Must See In Order To Be Cool list - but lost the list somewhere.

Sixties / early Seventies "Youth pictures" had a lot more edge in Britain than over here, didn't they? I'm thinking Lindsay Anderson - If... and O Lucky Man - for example. The Magic Christian.

Maybe American hippy flicks were angry - Vietnam and all that - but it seemed like they thought change was in the air, and they could win whatever they were fighting for.

Across the pond? Not so much.
