Number 274

Jethro Tull - Aqualung (Chrysalis - ILPS 9145) Jethro Tull should really be one of my all-time favourite bands. They seem to have been there from the beginning. During the early 1970s they ticked all the right boxes; a folk sounding band without actually being a folk band, a rock band whose riffs...

Number 273

Joni Mitchell - The Hissing Of Summer Lawns (Asylum Records - K 53018) I can't actually remember when I first got around to listening to Joni Mitchell's seventh studio album, but it would definitely have been after Ladies of the Canyon, Blue and For the Roses and quite possibly even after Hejira,...

Number 103

Electric Light Orchestra - 10538 Overture (Harvest HAR 5053 - 1972) In the 1960s, one of the bands that forced me to part with my well-earned paper round wage was The Move, a band whose singles, however cheesy, would have me in a state of chronic servitude, feverishly adding each 45 to my singles...

Number 446 - 01.02.18

Theme Tune: Put It Where You Want It - The Crusaders (Groove Crusade) How I Wrote Elastic Man - The Fall (Grotesque) To Love - Matthews Southern Comfort (Like a Radio) In France They Kiss on Main Street - Joni Mitchell (The Hissing of Summer Lawns) Knots - Gentle Giant (Octopus) The Boy in the Gap...

Number 272

King Crimson - Islands (Island ILPS 9175) ISLANDS was the fourth LP by British progressive rock outfit King Crimson and was released in 1971 on the Island record label. If the album is sometimes thought of as the weakest album in the early incarnation of the band, then it's due to the superior...

Number 445 - 15.01.18

Theme Tune: Put It Where You Want It - The Crusaders Lust for Life - Iggy Pop (Lust for Life) So Long, Goodbye, We're Through - Midnight Skyracer (Fire) Canadee-i-o - Nic Jones (Topic Records: The Real Sound of Folk Music) Cwm Elan - Jim Ghedi (A Hymn for Ancient Land) No More Fooling - Ben Morgan-...

Number 102

Wilson Pickett - Land of 1000 Dances (Atlantic 584039 - 1966) Occasionally, a certain sound comes along, whether that be Liverpool's Merseybeat, the Phil Spector Wall of Sound of the Gold Star Studios in Los Angeles, the country sound of Nashville, tennessee or Detroit's very distinctive Motown...

Number 271

Gram Parsons - Grievous Angel (Reprise Records K 54018) I can't actually claim to have been a Gram Parsons fan when this album was first recorded back in the Summer of 1973, despite being very much aware of the singer through his work with the Flying Burrito Brothers and The Byrds. It would be...

Number 101

Thin Lizzy - Whisky in the Jar (Decca F 13355 - 1972) Once considered a 'one hit wonder' band, before their stretch at being one of the biggest live draws on the rock scene in the late 1970s, Thin Lizzy's introduction into our consciousness was via their re-working of an old seventeenth century...

Number 444 - 01.01.18

Theme Tune: Put It Where You Want It - The Crusaders (Groove Crusade) Blueberry Wine - Gavin Sutherland (Wireless Connection) Everyone She Meets - The Railsplitters (Jump In) Return of the Grievous Angel - Gram Parsons (Grievous Angel) God Sends a Train - American Young (AY) The Robber's Song - The...
