Number 9

Arizona Smoke Revue - A Thundering on the Horizon (Rola R006) It's 1987 and I'm at the Cropredy Festival, Fairport Convention's annual bash, there specifically to catch John Martyn and Danny Thompson on the Friday night. We were running slightly late and could hear the wailing fiddle of Le Rue over...

Number 8

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Green River (Liberty LBS83273) In 1969/1970 my record collection boasted a little red box full to bursting with 45rpm 'singles'. There was no crap in there. That little box was my pride and joy. Whilst the radio insisted we needed to hear Rolf Harris singing about Two...

Number 7

Tonto's Expanding Head Band - Zero Time (Atlantic K40251) Okay, slightly different. It was 1972, I'm 15 and completely obsessed by a young nubile blonde Jimi Hendrix groupie who, wait for it, had her own flat. Looking back, it was actually a bedsit on Balby Road, not too glamorous in hindsight...

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?' This was usually after overhearing the vague leakage of Mike Heron singing Mercy I Cry City...
