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...

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...

The now familiar acoustic sound of this era was as a result of a back...

Cream - Goodbye Cream (Polydor 583053) The first time I heard the opening riff of Cream's Sunshine of Your Love , I knew my life would never be the same again. I was at a school dance watching a local trio play the pop hits of the day. The band played the opening bars of Sunshine of Your Love and I...
