1960s and 1970s

"Here are some old membership cards and flyers that I've found from Edinburgh clubs and discos in the late-1960s and early 1970s.

Note the 15 shillings (75p) admission price for Pink Floyd."

Suits and Boots

"I was a bit of a raver in the old days.  I wore a white suit and a turquoise suit to many of these clubs. I also had a pair of moccasin boots (Jethro Tull style) made for me by a chap who had a shop in East Fountainbridge.

If any of our younger viewers would like to see a reasonably accurate depiction of clothes styles and dance moves at a typical club, look no further than "John Newman's video called Love me again.  It takes me back!"
