Number 235

Magna Carta - Magna Carta (Mercury 201665MCL) Magna Carta was founded by a fellow Yorkshireman in 1969, Chris Simpson, who still leads the band to this day. Their gentle acoustic sound straddled the boundaries of acoustic folk and progressive rock at a time when just about anything being created...

Tom Robinson - War Baby (Panic records NIC2 - 1983) After the break-up of the band Sector 27 in the early 1980s, Tom Robinson re-located to Germany, learned a bit of German and started playing shows over there. Apparently this song was written under the influence and initially came over as a...

Number 234

Steely Dan - Can't Buy a Thrill (ABC ABCL 5024) I must say that I never fully climbed aboard the Steely Dan train during the 1970s, and I admit there are still albums out there that I've not heard to this day. I'm not quite sure why this is, as I really enjoyed this, their 1972 debut. I seem to...

Number 64

Warren Zevon - Werewolves of London (Asylum E45472 - 1978) I can't remember where or when I first heard this song it just seemed to creep into my life unexpected, unintentional and to be honest uninvited but somewhere along the line it became something of a favourite. The late Warren Zevon was...

Number 233

Jeff Beck - Wired (Epic EPC86012) By the time Jeff Beck came to release his first solo album in 1975, the young London guitarist was already a household name, having enjoyed success with The Yardbirds, The Jeff Beck Group and Beck, Bogert and Appice. A busy career it has to be said and with one...

Number 63

Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto - The Girl from Ipanema (Verve VK 10323 - 1963) In the 1960s, whether you liked it or not, there were one or two songs that entered the consciousness without actually opening the doors to let them in; they seemed to just filter in through the gaps in the wood and managed...

Number 232

Glencoe - Glencoe (Epic S EPC 65207) The Top Rank on Silver Street in Doncaster had two entirely different identities in the late 1960s and early 1970s, three if you count the teenybopper Saturday morning extravaganza known as the Saturday Morning Dance Club, where you could hear some of the most...
