SOUNDS OF THE SIXTIES

Club 60 & The Esquire 1960-67


Behind the scenes with the stars at two of the top northern clubs, Club 60 & The Esquire, owned by Terry Thornton. This is a unique account of life behind the scenes during the 1960s in the industrial city of Sheffield, when a musty old beer cellar helped stage a remarkable revival of popular music, and provided a unique live showcase for a host of top international and local performers.

Featuring: - Joe Cocker, Dave Berry & The Cruisers, Zoot Money, Frank White, Jimmy Crawford & The Coasters, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, Alan Price & The Animals, George Fame, Screaming Lord Sutch & The Savages, Long John Baldry, John Lee Hooker, Sonny Boy Williamson, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Frankenstein & The Monsters, Johnny Dark & The Midnighters, The Walker Brothers, The Kinks…and many more.


* This revised book also included dozens of rare and nostalgic photographs of the stars actually performing at the clubs during a seven-year period, together with a host of exclusive pictures of the many regular club members and supporters.


Written and produced by Terry Thornton & Don Hale.

This book is dedicated to all our fellow music enthusiasts from those halcyon days, who can still remember with fondness, most of not all of the performers mentioned – and who can still sadly recall (like me) many of their popular hits from decades ago!

With grateful thanks to Kath Hale, Trish Thornton and many others for their long suffering support, help and guidance in final putting a revised version of this book together again.
