Ivy League Are Inspired By Life

Keith Altham, New Musical Express, 23 July 1965

"MIDNIGHT... neon signs bursting into life and winking out... theatres with names in fire... Sammy Davis in Golden Boy... your first time walking down Broadway... the ground trembles with life... the noise, the rush, the smell... nothing... one hundred and fifty miles of nothing... vast Arizona desert... cowboys in spurs and stetsons riding in Cadillacs... that beautiful girl."
