Number 245

Christy Moore - Prosperous (Trailer LER 3035) Christy Moore's second album was an indication of what was to come shortly afterwards with the formation of one of Ireland's most successful supergroups Planxty. Gathered on the steps outside the Prosperous house in the village of the same name in...

Number 74

The Move - Brontosaurus (Regal Zonophone RZ 3026 - 1970) The Move were one of the few pop bands in the mid to late 1960s whose singles had the credibility to cross over to rock audiences. It was with the band's heavy riff-laden single Brontosaurus , that saw the first flowering of the rock outfit...

Number 244

Mott the Hoople - Mad Shadows (Island Records ILPS 9119) Mott the Hoople's 'difficult' second LP turned out to be possibly the band's best album in retrospect. Legend has it that its original title was Sticky Fingers but messers Jagger and Richards beat them to it with their own album release,...

Number 73

Genesis - I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe) (Charisma CB 224 - 1973) I wasn't on board the Genesis bandwagon until well after the release of the band's fourth album FOXTROT sometime in early 1973 and I distinctly recall eagerly awaiting around for their next instalment, which came in the form...

Number 72

Gilbert O'Sullivan - Nothing Rhymed (MAM 3 - 1970) In the early 1970s it was impossible to avoid the songs of Gilbert O'Sullivan, whose appeal spread across a wide demographic. His stage presence appeared totally out of place as glam rock began to dominate the charts at the time. Seated at the...

Number 242

Little Feat - Feats Don't Fail Me Now (Warner Bros K 56030) In the mid-1970s the radio was dominated by the sound of the West Coast with such bands as The Doobie Brothers and The Eagles lightening up a previously hard rock based landscape. Little Feat were slightly less known at the time but had...
