Roger McGuinn - Roger McGuinn (CBS 65274) It's 1973 and I've got a job. I'm fifteen years old and I'm fresh out of school, working as a plumber's mate, which I hate. It's a cold winter and I've got frostbite. Jim Parker, my boss, is irritated by my presense. He keeps telling me I wasn't his first...

Dransfield - The Fiddler's Dream (Transatlantic TRA 322) One of my regrets in music is to never have heard siblings Robin and Barry Dransfield sing together live. I never got to see the brothers live, it was just a bit before my time. I remember chatting to Robin on the phone in the mid 1980s and I...

Doc and Merle Watson - Red Rocking Chair (Flying Fish FF252) I first heard Doc and Merle Watson's Red Rocking Chair in the early 1980s on a vinyl LP which lived in Doncaster Central Music Library.
