Number 6

Various Artists - Bumpers (Island IDP1) I don't remember exactly where I picked up Bumpers from, quite possibly Foxes Records in Doncaster. Foxes had one of those sound booths where you could listen to samples of the records you were about to part with your hard earned cash for and I dare say this...

Number 5

Incredible String Band - The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter (Elektra EKS74021) Then there was the odd look dad would give me as we passed on the stairs, the sort of look that suggested 'are you really mine?'

Number 3

Loudon Wainwright III - Album II (Atlantic 2400 142) 1972 Just left school. I was the school weirdo simply because my musical taste differed dramatically from the rest (well I think that was the reason, it may quite possibly have been something else). Whilst bubblegum transformed itself into glam-...
