Shortly afterwards, the band...

Chris Squire - Fish Out of Water (Atlantic K50203) During a period of inactivity, members of the hugely successful Progressive rock Band Yes set out to record their own personal projects which resulted in a handful of solo albums released during the mid 1970s. Arguably the best of the bunch, Chris...

Roxy Music - Roxy Music (Island ILPS 9200) The misty annals of time have made it unclear as to the circumstances surrounding my first discovering Roxy Music in the early 1970s. It was either hearing Virginia Plain on the radio, seeing the band perform on the Old Grey Whistle Test or as was common...

Bert Jansch - It Don't Bother Me (Transatlantic TRA132) In the late 1960s, it was considered cool to have a Bert Jansch record in your collection, especially one of the earlier Transatlantic records. By the time of Bert's death in 2011, it was still cool to own his records, and possibly even more...

Free - All Right Now (Island WIP 6082 - 1970) Once again, a rather obvious choice for this series in fact, I can't imagine even considering a soundtrack to go with my youth without the inclusion of Paul Kossoff's classic opening riff. In the late Sixties and early Seventies, there seemed to be an...

Number 105

The Move - Fire Brigade (Regal Zonophone - RZ 3005 - 1968) Written by Roy Wood and performed by The Move, Fire Brigade is one of those memorable pop songs from the late Sixties. It was the band's fourth single release and it's loaded with twangy Duane Eddy styled guitar licks together with a great...
