Strangely enough awreddy oan the shelves mid-March.

Anyway - extended interview wi' Daltrey as well as an article aboot Sister Rosetta Tharpe n' a piece oan Derek Taylor wha' quit workin' as The Beatles press officer tae work in the U.S. wi' The Byrds n' others.

Best hing tho' is the free CD ay early 60s R&B n' soul featurin' the likes ay King Curtis, Ernie K-Doe n' Mose Allison.

The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) select committee said it is "not in a position" to state what was in the 'jiffy bag' delivered to Wiggins at the 2011 Criterium du Dauphine.

Embdy else been watchin' this excellent series oan the BBC?

Very well made n' good tae get the various perspectives oan the conflict aw represented. (N Vietnam, S Vietnam, those servin' in the US forces n' yanks opposed tae the war).

As somebody that wis born in 1962 it's also made me depressingly realise that fur pretty much ma entire lifetime the yanks huv been carpet bombin' some third world country somewhaur oan the globe.

If only mair folk had listened tae Edwin Starr!
