Number 277

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...

Number 106

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...

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...

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...

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...

Number 104

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...
