Bert Jansch - Rosemary Lane (Transatlantic TRA 235) In the 1980s I placed a piece of knife-cut stencilling film over this LP cover and carefully cut out the image in order to print it onto a t shirt, which I then wore until it dropped off my back in submission. Bert's seventh album was released in...

Stealers Wheel - Ferguslie Park (A&M 68209) My name appears to be scribbled on the inner sleeve of this Stealers Wheel LP, along with the date of '73, the year I must have bought it. Despite my memory being slightly hazy, especially when it comes to this period, I still remember picking this...

John Lennon - Walls and Bridges (Apple PCTC253) By 1974 John Lennon had pretty much disappeared from the scene, only to pop up now and again in the tabloids, raising hell with Harry Nilsson during his now legendary 'Lost Weekend' period in LA with May Pang. I was sort of hanging out with a pal's...

Ry Cooder - Chicken Skin Music (Reprise REP54083) Ry Cooder's stint with Captain Beefheart was a long forgotten nightmare by the time Chicken Skin Music (the UK equivalent would be 'Goose Bump Music', or music to make your hair stand up) was released in the hot summer of 1976.
