Rock on Mikey! I am your #1 fan. I am also the fan of the man from Tennessee.

Hush Puppies one step up from brothel creepers.
  Sat. 4/9/16 11:07am lloyd michigan:

So, are those Hush Puppies for men or women? I don't understand that ad.
Avatar Sat. 4/9/16 11:07am Frank Above:

Rock on Mike!
Avatar 🎃 Sat. 4/9/16 11:08am Brian in UK:

I think they were usually for men.

Rockin' Big Time as usual ms!
  Sat. 4/9/16 11:10am lloyd michigan:

Hush Puppies were men's shoes, but this has me puzzled. And I've been in advertising since 1977.
  Sat. 4/9/16 11:12am nachurall:

Nuthin but the hits!
Thank you Michael.
  Sat. 4/9/16 11:14am lloyd michigan:

Gotta hear at least one song from Merle.
Avatar 🎃 Sat. 4/9/16 11:16am Brian in UK:

@lloyd read the small print.

I remember in the late Sixties, a clothes company called Austin Reed advertised a range to try and stop you smoking as "the jacket to jack it off in". This expression was no well known over here at the time. Wacko.
Avatar 🎃 Sat. 4/9/16 11:19am Brian in UK:

Not sure where that memory came from. Maybe Lord Johns in Carnaby Street.

That's wild, Brian. I read the copy in the HP ad, and still don't get it. Haven't had my coffee yet.

It is of the time. For "Libs" (womens liberation) it would have been "Squares" ten years earlier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 4/9/16 11:26am melinda:

@Brian: are 'brothel creepers' a real thing or did you make it up? I like it.

Folks! Thanks!

Avatar 🎃 Sat. 4/9/16 11:29am Brian in UK:

melinda, no I really should have compared Hush Puppies with desert boots.
Brothel creepers are what Teddy Boys wore over here in the late Fifties. Along with Drape jackets . Honest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 4/9/16 11:31am Stevel:

Are Brothel Creepers related to Winklepickers?

Avatar Sat. 4/9/16 11:32am dinatekno:

I am LOVING the music Mike! Keep going just as you are! It's perfect!

Steve, I was just about to ask that! Fab wear, right?

I love the Black Hollies. I want more of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 4/9/16 11:33am melinda:

Thanks Brian, I believe you. I've always confused desert boots with Wallabees.
  Sat. 4/9/16 11:34am lloyd michigan:

Are desert boots chukka boots?
Avatar 🎃 Sat. 4/9/16 11:35am Brian in UK:

No way brothel creepers are sort of crepe soles and round toed but winkle pickers, as the name implies are pointed and screw your feet up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 4/9/16 11:35am Stevel:

Heck, Lloyd, I just like saying Winklepicker, out loud.
  Sat. 4/9/16 11:37am lloyd michigan:

I'm sure somewhere in the world, it's offensive.

Avatar 🎃 Sat. 4/9/16 11:41am Brian in UK:

I guess winkle pickers comes from the ability to pick a winkle shellfish from its shell as it is pointed.

Phew enough.

Enjoying the tunes.

Haven't heard the Hollies' take on "Rock" in a boatload of time. If memory serves (questionable at my age), that was the first version of that song I ever heard.

Always say - Mike Sin like makes a new Volume of Nuggets on demand.
