Back in 1968, Julie Driscoll was riding high in the charts with Bob Dylan's song "Wheels on Fire." She was a member, never the leader, of Julie Driscoll & the Brian Auger Trinity but the media loved her and singled her out from the band. Extremely photogenic, 'Jools' was as much a sixties icon as Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy but she neither sought nor enjoyed the attention. Look her up in image searches ,you will see the charismatic essence of art dance and song ,with a striking visage of dreamlike worlds.
In 2010, with Ghosts of Gold, Tippetts began a partnership with Sheffield-based multi-instrumentalist and auteur Martin Archer. Three other fine records have followed--Tales of Finin, Serpentine and Vestigium -and the duo begin work on an album in 2017 ,released in 2018 .
If you are interested hearing in any more music from the "Psychedelic" era , check out Psychedelicized for some very well researched rare music of the times .
If you would like to see a Quintessentially MOD British TV special "Groovy" from 1968 -(I think the sound could be better , guessing it was vintage monoraul television sound.) That said Julie waxes somewhere between folk blues Dusty Springfield jazz smoke and ether with Brian Auger & The Trinity.
Visually: the half hour film is beautifully shot in high contrast Black and White with pop imagery film clip inserts.Worth a look for sure .
