Number 50

Martin Simpson - Grinning in Your Face (Topic 12TS430) Up until the mid-1980s, I'd been playing nothing but blues guitar for a good five years solid and was blues obsessed. I read Paul Oliver books by day, played the guitar in the evening, dreamed of being a blind blues singer from the Mississippi...

Number 46

Pretty Things - Freeway Madness (Warner Brothers K46190) I was always amused by the name this bunch chose for their band; a less pretty bunch you could not imagine. They're still going strong and I met up with Phil May earlier this year, therefore I can confirm that with age their aesthetic...
