FIRST EDITION! 'Have Guitars... Will Travel' takes the reader on a magical music tour through Northampton during the golden years of 1957-66.
Derrick A Thompson and William MArtin recreate the atmosphere, and relive the music created by the 60+ local bands rockin' their way from The Old White Hart Inn in Cotton End through to the Maple Ballroom in Bridge Street.
From 1957, began a never-to-be-forgotten ten years of skiffle, rock 'n' roll, & R&B when local groups lit up the town's pubs and dance halls; national groups visited for one-off shows, and international stars packed out the ABC cinema.
The music scene of the late 50's and early 60's was vivid, vibrant and volatile.
Relive those years with those who were there...
