Kate and Anna McGarrigle (Warner Brothers K56218) When you first discover voices like this you should really remember where and when you heard them, but to be honest, I don't, for the life of me. It may have been on the Old Grey Whistle Test back in the mid 1970s. It may have been on the John Peel...

Number 29

Frank Zappa - Hot Rats (Reprise 44078) The first time I heard Frank Zappa was in the early 1970s when I bought the Mothers of Invention's second LP Absolutely Free (that's the name of the album not the price tag) from Ken's Swap Shop on St Sepulchre Gate in Doncaster. I was Ken's most keen swapper...

Little Feat - Sailin' Shoes (Warner Brothers BS2600) Memory's a bit hazy, this was the early 1970s after all and I had just jumped the high school ship and landed right on my backside in the real world. One of the first things I did after leaving school was to join a hippy theatre group called '...

Free - Fire and Water (Island ILPS9120) In 1970 you would have to have been a hermit living in the remote Motuo County in China, that or a crown court judge, not to have heard of the British rock band Free. All Right Now was constantly on the radio, which in those days was located under the bed...

Townes Van Zandt - Our Mother th Mountain (TomatoTOM 7015) This second album by the legendary Texas singer songwriter Townes Van Zandt from 1969 (re-issued here in 1978 on Tomato), was probably the first indication for me that there was possibly more to country music than rhinestones and big...
