Number 68

Bob Dylan - Blood on the Tracks (CBS 69097) I remember it so well, 1975, the 1960s were just about over! Dylan had released nothing really exceptional since John Wesley Harding; we'd had the silly change of voice on Nashville Skyline and New Morning, a rather dismal covers album in Dylan, a...

Number 67

Various Artists - Woodstock Original Soundtrack (Atlantic K60001) The Woodstock Festival or to give it its official title The Woodstock Music and Arts Fair, left a great impression on me even though I wasn't there. I was three and a half thousand miles away and just twelve and a half years old at...

Number 66

June Tabor and Martin Simpson - A Cut Above (Topic 12TS410) There's something quite special about June Tabor's voice even though I've never been able to put my finger on exactly what it is. When I first saw June in a folk club in the 1980s, she was joined by Martin Simpson, a guitarist who was also...

Number 65

Shirley Collins and Davy Graham - Folk Roots New Routes (Decca LK4652) There's something a little bit odd about the cover of this classic folk LP from 1965. There's an unusually large gap between the singer and the guitar player, a gap that turns into a chasm on the black and white studio picture...

Number 64

The Incredible String Band - The Incredible String Band (Elektra EKS-7322) Whilst the English football squad were celebrating victory at Wembley and The Beatles were dominating the charts with Paperback Writer and Yellow Submarine, 1966 also saw the arrival on vinyl of a funny little trio named The...
