Not a film many people outside the Jackie Chan Completists Society will be urging you to see, but a nifty set of British '60s sounds, avoiding the usual chestnuts and instead dredging up memories you never knew you had, like "Winchester Cathedral" by The New Vaudeville Band, possibly the oddest pop song ever conceived. Although it's given a run for its pottiness by Roger Miller's "England Swings".

Shanghai Knights – Hollywood

Not a film many people outside the Jackie Chan Completists Society will be urging you to see, but a nifty set of British ’60s sounds, avoiding the usual chestnuts and instead dredging up memories you never knew you had, like “Winchester Cathedral” by The New Vaudeville Band, possibly the oddest pop song ever conceived. Although it’s given a run for its pottiness by Roger Miller’s “England Swings”. The kitsch is balanced by The Zombies, Harry Nilsson and Georgie Fame, and some Randy Edelman filler, but two bursts of The Who hang it high?”My Generation” and (especially) “Magic Bus” sound as vibrant as the day they were born.
