Number 23

Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick - But Two Came By (Topic 12TS343) An original copy of Martin Carthy's fifth LP from 1968 with Dave Swarbrick is a much sought after gem, pictures of which can be seen on my pal Kev's excellent Carthy Online website (now re-named Come Sing It Plain). Originally...

Number 22

Woody Guthrie - Dust Bowl Ballads (Rounder 1040) I don't know where to start with Woody. I think it's more the legend that surrounds Woody Guthrie than the actual songs, the music or the man that appeals to me. I know the first time I became aware of him was after seeing Alice's Restaurant as a...

Number 21

Up to that point my record collection was made up purely of singles, some of which resided in a plastic wallet that I referred to as...

Number 20

Claire Hamill - One House Left Standing (Island ILPS 9182) All my girlfriends in 1971 (real or imagined) looked like Claire Hamill. Just seventeen on the cover of her debut LP, Claire was rightly or wrongly compared with Joni Mitchell, which was probably more of a hindrance than a help...

Number 19

Pentangle - Basket of Light (Transatlantic TRA 205) It's not exactly 1969, more like a couple of years later, when a young and hip Methodist Youth Club leader and his equally young and infinitely more attractive wife introduced me to Pentangle. I was the youth club deejay (well it was my dansette...
