Vinegar Joe: Rock'n'Roll Gypsies

Chris Salewicz, Let It Rock, May 1973

It’s not Michael Philip Jagger enticing them to rip that joint, but Ms. Elkie Brooks getting it on with Vinegar Joe at the old swimming baths that Kingston Poly uses for its bigger gigs. And right now this band is getting hotter and hotter.
