Everlasting Love and Love Affair: A Pop Idol’s Life and Secret Romance in the Swinging 60s by Patricia Jackson (signed 1st edtion hardback)


This hardback copy has been signed by the author, Patricia Jackson.

‘Everlasting Love’ featured in Kenneth Branagh’s 2021 film, ‘Belfast,’ is a classic song that catapulted the Love Affair to fame and for three years the group were almost as popular, in Britain, as the Beatles. This never before told ‘behind the screams’ story of the youngest group to have a No. 1 hit, may be fun and fascinating, but it is also a serious piece of rock music history, appealing to everyone who loved, or lived during, London’s swinging 60s. Patricia was the secret fiancée of Mick Jackson, bass player, and has catalogued his life in the group in astonishing detail. Whether the boys were being arrested and jailed for causing chaos after climbing Eros or shocking the nation by exposing the music industry’s biggest ever cover-up, live on Saturday night TV, a controversy was never far away. Coupled with a revealing, often humorous account of her own and Mick’s romance, this is an exceptional memoir. Together for 55 years and still talking, Mick & Patricia have possibly the longest, happy relationship in the memory of pop.
