Fairport Convention - Now Be Thankful (Island WIP6089 - 1970) The first time I heard the folk rock outfit Fairport Convention was via probably the Island sampler Bumpers, released in the early 1970s, when Walk a While' s infectious chorus drew me in as a curious observer. Within a short period of...

S.E. Rogie - Palm Wine Guitar Music (Cooking Vinyl Cook 010) Although Palm Wine Guitar Music was released in 1988, the songs were recorded between 1960 and 1969 in Freetown, Sierra Leone and Montrovia, Liberia, not only in mono, but 'glorious mono' according to the sleeve notes. Comparing his music...

Peter Gabriel - Games Without Frontiers (Charisma CB354 - 1980) Peter Gabriel was well into his solo career after leaving Genesis, when he scored with this, his biggest hit so far.

Martin Carthy - Because It's There (Topic 12TS389) Keith Morris's cover shot of Martin Carthy's tenth album BECAUSE IT'S THERE, features a healthy looking thirty-something enjoying the simple outdoor pursuit of rambling, leaning on a stick by an English country stream. Could there be a more...

Bob Marley and the Wailers - No Woman, No Cry (Island WIP6244 - 1974) My own personal introduction to the music of Bob Marley was through the Old Grey Whistle Test in the early 1970s, although my love for reggae started much earlier through the singles of Desmond Decker, Dave and Ansil Collins and...

The Incredible String Band - The 5000 Spirits Or The Layers Of The Onion (Elektra EUKS 7257) Like most late Sixties albums, I don't precisely recall when I first heard them, more than likely sometime in the early Seventies, when my attention had shifted from pop 45s to more adult oriented rock...

One of those records that the DJ...
