Number 64

Warren Zevon - Werewolves of London (Asylum E45472 - 1978) I can't remember where or when I first heard this song it just seemed to creep into my life unexpected, unintentional and to be honest uninvited but somewhere along the line it became something of a favourite. The late Warren Zevon was...

Number 234

Steely Dan - Can't Buy a Thrill (ABC ABCL 5024) I must say that I never fully climbed aboard the Steely Dan train during the 1970s, and I admit there are still albums out there that I've not heard to this day. I'm not quite sure why this is, as I really enjoyed this, their 1972 debut. I seem to...

Number 63

Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto - The Girl from Ipanema (Verve VK 10323 - 1963) In the 1960s, whether you liked it or not, there were one or two songs that entered the consciousness without actually opening the doors to let them in; they seemed to just filter in through the gaps in the wood and managed...

Number 233

Jeff Beck - Wired (Epic EPC86012) By the time Jeff Beck came to release his first solo album in 1975, the young London guitarist was already a household name, having enjoyed success with The Yardbirds, The Jeff Beck Group and Beck, Bogert and Appice. A busy career it has to be said and with one...

Number 62

Nicky Thomas - Love of the Common People (Trojan TR7750 - 1970) Nicky Thomas's reggae version of the folk ballad Love of the Common People , written by John Hurley and Ronnie Wilkins, was the only one that held any sway with me back in the early 1970s. Although pop reggae, as opposed to the more...

Number 232

Glencoe - Glencoe (Epic S EPC 65207) The Top Rank on Silver Street in Doncaster had two entirely different identities in the late 1960s and early 1970s, three if you count the teenybopper Saturday morning extravaganza known as the Saturday Morning Dance Club, where you could hear some of the most...

Number 61

Neil Young - Heart of Gold (Reprise K14140 - 1972) It was hard to escape the sound of Neil Young in the early 1970s, which was largely due to his hugely successful third solo album After the Goldrush and its follow up Harvest. The now familiar acoustic sound of this era was as a result of a back...
