 Mickey, that's what stands out in the movie 'The girl can't help it', Richard's suit & Gold shoes and Jayne Mansfield's arse [arse, correct spelling, not ass, which is a donkey sort of thingee]

 I suspect both Keith's pic and Strawberry_Lynn's book cover pic predate the rock & roll era because by 1957, although drape jackets had pretty much disappeared, no self respecting Ted (or any rebellious British teenager for that matter) would be seen dead in trousers that weren't "drainpipes". Fourteen inch cuffs were the go, twelve inch if you were really skinny (which most of us were). Bodgies and widgies in Australia and New Zealand followed suit. The problem was that off-the-rack British trousers were cut for our fathers with 20 inch plus cuffs so our mothers had to trim them down for us on their sewing machines, but they were still baggy at the top with waistbands almost under our armpits. Paradoxically our American rock and roll heroes were still wearing ridiculously baggy suits with enormous trousers, Little Richard being a prime example.

 Yes, I remember as late as 1960 or '61 anyone with a Tony Curtis haircut (and the right attitude) would be referred to as a Ted, even though by then it was short bum-freezer jackets or sharp three-button Italian suits with winkle-picker shoes.

 I remember reading a book about teddy boys a few years back
.this one I think and in it, the author stated that you didn't have to have all the gear, a teddy boy hair cut would be enough for you to be described as a 'ted'

 I'll buy that, Rob - makes commercial sense, after all. Thanks.

 Perhaps it was a question of pricing, Ade. Back in the '50s and '60s EPs were more expensive than singles, and giving them a separate numerical series meant that a company could include them en bloc on their price lists. By 1979 however, EPs were few and far between, 12" singles being the favoured format. If I remember correctly this EP and the 'Nut' series sold for the price of a single. With there being no difference in price there would have been no practical need to differentiate between them.

 Wonder if this was originally intended for the EMI Nut series of retro releases, given the involvement of Colin Miles? Also note that this EP has the standard 'R' prefix letter normally assigned to singles, rather than the GEP used for EPs. Carelessness, ignorance or couldn't-care-less-ness?

 John Amery,the British fascist who did propaganda broadcasts for Nazi Germany,was a sort of proto-teddy boy.

 Retro is probably better than the real thing

 Personal observation: almost every photograph you see of teddy boys is "retro", posed shots of guys from later generations, often with exaggerated hair and sideburns or imitation drapes, dreaming of a time before their's. I think the whole ted thing pre-dated and coincided with the first year or two of rock & roll and was pretty much over by about 1957. As a wide-eyed thirteen year old New Zealander in London in late 1957 I can only remember seeing drape jackets rarely. Brylcreemed quiffs and duck's arse hair was still in though, with drainpipe trousers and ripple sole suede shoes and (for awhile) fluorescent green or yellow socks, but the so-called Edwardian look had pretty much run it's course by then. Nostalgia's a wonderful thing though.

 How is this titled Joe Brown? That's just his name on the cover, it's not a title of the disc.
