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...

Various Artists - The Age of Atlantic (Atlantic 2464 013) This would've been 1971, the year decimalisation came in, which coincided with the appearance of an abundance of sampler albums with '99' printed somewhere on the gatefold sleeve. I was at school at the time with a couple of hundred Northern...

Number 17

Bob Dylan - Bringing It All Back Home (CBS 62515) Well this was the one that started it. Whilst my dad's record collection was made up of Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller, and mum's was Eddie Arnold and Hank Locklin, my dad's brother, Uncle Paddy, introduced me to the world of Bob Dylan via this 1965...

Number 16

Andy Irvine Paul Brady (Mulligan LUN 008) In the mid 1970s I was so consumed with the blues that just about everything else took a back seat. This went on for a number of years when at times I actually believed I was black, blind and came from the Mississippi Delta. I'd done my prog rock stint and...
