The Mersey Sound Restored 50th Anniversary Edition

Written by Adrian Henri, Roger McGough, Brian Patten

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics Series

The Mersey Sound Restored 50th Anniversary Edition Synopsis

'I wanted your soft verges But you gave me the hard shoulder' The Mersey Sound brought poetry down from the shelf and on to the street, capturing the mood of the Sixties and speaking to real lives with its irreverent, wry, freewheeling verses of young love, petrol-pump attendants, CND leaflets and bus journey capers.

Now, for its fiftieth anniversary, this edition restores the original text of the book as it first appeared in 1967: energetic, raw and a true record of its era.
