Rod Stewart - An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down (Vertigo VO 4) An Old Raincoat Won't Ever Let You Down was Rod Stewart's first solo album, released in the summer of 1969 after some success with the Jeff Beck Group and also having already established himself on the British R&B scene. The...

Family - The Weavers Answer (Reprise Records - RS 27009 - 1970) Family was one of the rock bands of the late 1960s whose music came to me first and foremost through 45rpm singles, rather than the unaffordable albums of the time. For a kid with a paper round and a hunger for records, the format...

Number 274

Jethro Tull - Aqualung (Chrysalis - ILPS 9145) Jethro Tull should really be one of my all-time favourite bands. They seem to have been there from the beginning. During the early 1970s they ticked all the right boxes; a folk sounding band without actually being a folk band, a rock band whose riffs...

Number 273

Joni Mitchell - The Hissing Of Summer Lawns (Asylum Records - K 53018) I can't actually remember when I first got around to listening to Joni Mitchell's seventh studio album, but it would definitely have been after Ladies of the Canyon, Blue and For the Roses and quite possibly even after Hejira,...

Electric Light Orchestra - 10538 Overture (Harvest HAR 5053 - 1972) In the 1960s, one of the bands that forced me to part with my well-earned paper round wage was The Move, a band whose singles, however cheesy, would have me in a state of chronic servitude, feverishly adding each 45 to my singles...

Number 102

Wilson Pickett - Land of 1000 Dances (Atlantic 584039 - 1966) Occasionally, a certain sound comes along, whether that be Liverpool's Merseybeat, the Phil Spector Wall of Sound of the Gold Star Studios in Los Angeles, the country sound of Nashville, tennessee or Detroit's very distinctive Motown...

Number 272

King Crimson - Islands (Island ILPS 9175) ISLANDS was the fourth LP by British progressive rock outfit King Crimson and was released in 1971 on the Island record label. If the album is sometimes thought of as the weakest album in the early incarnation of the band, then it's due to the superior...
