Having just noticed that the initiator of the latest "book" thread left the site taking the discussion with him, it's my turn again to revive it; being too important a topic to be dropped, imo.

Having finished "Get Carter" by Ted Lewis over the Holidays, I'll soon start with "Jack Carters Law", a prequel set in late 60s Soho.

    • Only a fiver Chris. Considering the history and condition (ex/mint), a very good price... I think he let me have it at that because I knew the track and "someone with the letter P" was Lou Pride - I'm Com'un Home In The Morn'un. Who he said he saw live at the Marquee Club ;0)

    • That is a fantastic buy Gary. Great classic northern track too is that Lou Pride number.

    • Cheers Chris, well chuffed with the buy from Steve "The North London Modernist..."

      The above track not to be confused with the Mel Torme tune, another cool classic in it's own right that plays good back to back with the Lou Pride number ;0)

  • My copy arrived today; will start on it asap.

    • I'm really interested in your honest and objective view, when you have finished reading the Influential Factor Kai. Or indeed anyone who has fully read the recently published and updated edition. From what I have read from the synopsis of the book, it doesn't fill me with any urgency to rush out and buy a copy so far...

    • Will let you know, Gary. Been a while since I read the first edition, but memories are rather positive.

    • I think that may be my next read Kai, just reading the cyclist Chris Froomes book at the moment.

    • Should be good, judging by the 2002 issue, Alan; seems like a lot worth adding has happened since then on the international Mod scene...

  • All about my favourite Turk (well, apart from the Missus, obviously...) and Atlantic Records. 

  • I find it a good read, The Chap!
