This is the natural follow up to David Lavisher's successful first book A Moorside Lad. Here we find the awakening of a teenager discovering beer, girls, motorbikes and Rock and Roll. It is reasonable to assume that these experiences were not peculiar to northern towns in the late fifties and early sixties. However, the combination of northern mill-town life and later country life close to the attractions offered by the town produced a routinely heady mix. Added to that, a lad had to have a job to buy the fancy threads, pay for the beer, take out the girls. Life was an exciting trial. Conquests and mistakes came in equal measure. It was a time of learning and the moulding of one's character and future. It was, in many respects, the best of times before the weight of responsibility began its crush. The book is sprinkled with the lyrics of favourite songs of the period and David has written two poems which are evocative of the time. Nostalgia rears its siren head to beguile the readers and provoke the casting back of minds. It is a jolly read littered with David's gentle sideways humour but, in the background, you can feel the beat. But, is it the beat of the music or of an eager, youthful heart?
