"Up and down the London Wall. In the shadow of Guildhall. To the dear old lady of Threadneedle Street ..." Mike Proctor's Mr Commuter is a late '60s psychedelic dancefloor gem poking fun at the City clones, working their lives away, for what? Some neat City references too, and a mention of Luncheon Vouchers to jog our memories. Arranged and conducted by Len Beadle, I believe, says he trying to sound knowledgeable. Who could be the Len Beadle who co-wrote Beryl Marsden's What's She Got, another mod dancer. This selection comes courtesy of Andy Lewis, who will know a lot more about these things.
